Interested in seeing the Arboretum but can’t make it in person? Here we have collected some ways to enjoy the Arboretum virtually.
Trekker – Virtual tour of the Arboretum
The trekker tour of the Arboretum was created several years ago–some areas of the trail look considerably different now–but it is a fun way to visualize the Arboretum. The experience is like Google’s Street View and allows you to click or tap a point on the trail to navigate.
Google Poly Tours
Update July 2021: Google has discontinued this service, and we are looking for another host to share Lyon’s virtual tours with the public. Thank you for your patience with us as we transition to a new virtual tour platform. You can contact us about our virtual tours at LyonEdu@hawaii.edu. (This email address will replace our old email address email@example.com, effective 1/1/23. Beginning 1/1/23, please use LyonEdu@hawaii.edu.)
We periodically post videos sharing the sights and sounds of the Arboretum on our social media accounts. A few of them can be found below.
