Nature Under the Stars

As much as I love staying indoors with a warm blanket during this cold weather, it’s also very important to take some time to get out and experience some nature and fresh air. And if you’re in the Overland Park region of Kansas, what better place to experience that kind of magic than at the Overland Park Arboretum? 

This dazzling, scenic botanical garden features an array of beautiful trees, flowers, and plants that simply have to be fully experienced in the great outdoors. And since Covid-19 took a giant toll on our desire to leave the house, it’s important to go out and experience some quality nature from time to time, especially since it can be very good for your health! 

This Friday, running from 7:00pm to 9:00pm, the Overland Park Arboretum & Botanical Gardens is hosting its special Night at the Arboretum event! This FREE event will allow you and your family to explore the beautiful nature grounds of the arboretum in the dark, getting the chance to fully immerse yourself in nature from the glow of your flashlight. The park features many unique species of birds nearby and you won’t want to miss getting the chance to see some fascinating wildlife under cover of darkness. And the great thing is that with all the arboretum’s wide-open space, you’ll be fully socially distanced from others, allowing for a safe outdoor experience.

For the best places to live in proximity to the Overland Park Arboretum, I definitely recommend Clear Creek Apartments. This great, affordable, pet-friendly community is only fifteen minutes away and provides easy commutes all across the Overland Park area. I was surprised at just how friendly the staff can be and it’s a very good way to have access to the best amenities while still being able to enjoy Kansas life at a good price. 

Even if you’re not really a nature person, I think you still would not want to miss this event. It can be difficult to push yourself to go outside after we essentially spent all of last year stuck indoors. But trust me, some things are just better off experienced outside, especially when it involves some quality nighttime exploration. And hey, it’s free! That makes it even better! You can even bring your dog along, so long as it’s kept on a leash. I’d say it’s a win-win all around.
