ArborEarth Day is a fun family festival! As the original home of Dr. Frances Bartlett, 'the father of arboriculture,' the Bartlett Arboretum & Gardens is the perfect location to welcome guests in celebration of Arbor Day and Earth Day. Families will enjoy listening to music, touring the Bartlett's gardens and greenhouse, viewing tree climbing and planting demonstrations and visiting our booths to learn about gardening, nature, conservation, and sustainability. Kids will also love learning about backyard critters and pollinators, face painting, storytelling, composting, riding in a cherry picker, and crafting. This is a FREE event and lunch will be available for purchase.
