EARTH DAY EVENT POSTPONED TILL SUMMER 2020
Due to concerns over the Covid-19 virus outbreak, we have postponed this year’s Earth Day at the Arboretum event. However, because of this year’s special anniversary—and because every day is Earth Day—we are determined to reschedule the event for the summer. We will announce the new date ASAP. Stay tuned!
