Ladies, when was the last time you climbed a tree? If you’re anything like me, it was probably on a Girl Scout camping trip in the fourth grade. And you’ve probably never thought about doing it since. Until now.


Morris Arboretum is offering a one-day, introductory tree-climbing class for women on April 5th, that teaches tips and techniques to get you back in touch with that long-lost childhood agility.

The instructor, Rachel Brudinski, is an arborist and champion tree-climber. (Competitive tree climbing?! That's a thing?) She'll be demonstrating climbing techniques especially for women, as well as teaching safety techniques so you don't, you know, fall out of the tree.

Our suggestion? Bring a friend and a PB&J and relive your fondest childhood memories. Oh, and don't forget your camera. Because few things sound like an awesome photo-op than adult tree-climbing.

Register here, and do it soon—their last session sold out.

$125 per person; April 5th from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.; Morris Arboretum, 100 East Northwestern Ave., Chestnut Hill.
