30th Annual Arbor Day Celebration in Elkhart
Stop by our Adopt-A-Tree tent and pick up a free tree! 811 and NIPSCO arborists will be available to answer any questions, and will do a tree planting demonstration.
Guided tree hikes will be offered every hour on the half hour throughout the event at 10:30. 11:30, and 12:30. At 11:30 there will be a special scavenger hunt hike for the kids. There will also be coloring activities, games, puppets, and fun books in our Learning Loft for kids to play with!
At noon our Spring Plant Exchange will start–bring your healthy potted plants and exchange them for different ones!
City departments, such as Aquatics, Engineering, Parks, and the EEC will also have booths at the event where you can learn more about the benefits of trees as well as what the departments do. Aquatics will have live fish from the river.
You can also check out a live woodworking demonstration by one of our ElkhartWood Program’s very own woodworkers.
