January 23, 2020 - 9 AM - 1 PM

Be an arborist for a day! Enjoy a scavenger hunt, take a picture with Smokey Bear, and more! Your family can learn about native trees, plant a tree and watch your tree grow for generations using your tree’s GPS coordinates in the Burden Woods. All trees planted help to reforest our native trees lost during Hurricane Gustav. We will also have native trees for sale at Arbor Day for $15. 

The event is free and open to the public. Wear your rain boots!

Native tree sale will include...

  • Drummond Red Maple 
  • American Beautyberry 
  • Button Bush 
  • Honey Locust 
  • Water Tupelo 
  • Common Apple 
  • Blackgum 
  • American Elm 
  • Pond Cypress 
  • Swamp White Oak 
  • Southern Red Oak 
  • Willow Oak 

Thank you to our sponsors!
