January 20, 2024 | 9 a.m. - 1 p.m.

Join us and Baton Rouge Green to be an arborist for a day!

Baton Rouge Green will host their annual tree giveaway at Arbor Day. One giveaway tree per household while supplies last. Find more information on the tree giveaway on their website.

Guests can also plant a tree, enjoy a scavenger hunt, meet Smokey Bear, and more! Your family can learn about native trees, take home a free tree, and plant a tree to watch it grow for generations using your tree’s GPS coordinates in the Burden Woods. All trees planted help to reforest our native trees lost during previous hurricane seasons. 

Local food trucks Petite Rouge and Ole Mississippi Smokehouse will be serving up coffee, pastries and lunch at Arbor Day! This year we also welcome our first tree-related creative vendors.

The event is free and open to the public! We recommend visitors wear rubber boots, gloves and dress warmly!
