January 25, 2020 - 9 AM - 1 PM

Be an arborist for a day! Scale a Louisiana live oak, meet Smokey Bear, try your hand at axe throwing, enjoy a scavenger hunt 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 $5. 

Concessions are available for purchase. The event is free and open to the public. Wear your rain boots!
