Tree Talk Winter Walk
Saturday, January 24, 2015 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Celebrate Texas trees in the Arboretum while learning about trees for your yard, ideal trees for wildlife, and tree care.
We will have a wide selection of native trees and shrubs for sale, and there will be guided walks and talks by experts and lots of family-friendly activities including Kids' Tree Climb sponsored by They Might Be Monkeys, shelter building with tree branches, a marshmallow roast and bonfire, swinging in the Cathedral of Oaks and a tree scavenger hunt.
TreeFolks is providing native tree saplings to those who complete the scavenger hunt. The Cafe will be in the Arboretum also with hot beverages and snack food (cash only).
