The Minnesota Landscape Arboretum has announced it will be offering free tickets to teachers in March.
The University of Minnesota-run Chanhassen nature attraction said that educators will be able to get two free tickets to visit anytime from Mar. 1-31.
"We want to say ‘thank you’ by opening up the Arboretum to the creative and hard-working teachers who have continued to educate our children during these unprecedented circumstances," said Arboretum Director Peter Moe.
"We invite our Minnesota educators to enjoy early spring at the Arboretum by exploring miles of hiking trails, fine art in the Harrison Sculpture Garden and Reedy Gallery, and our early spring bulb displays. We hope this provides an opportunity for them to unwind and recharge."
The arboretum usually charges $15 for adult admission, with reservations required as it continues to limit the number of people in at the same time due to COVID.
It ran a similar offer in October, when it offered free admission to healthcare workers.
Teachers who sign up for the latest offer can make a reservation at 612-624-2200. They'll be emailed a ticket and will be asked to present an employee ID upon arrival.
