Cary, NC — Cary’s annual Arbor Day, set for Saturday, March 12, is all about exploring the wonders of trees and forests!
Located outside the Bond Park Boathouse, the festival will run from 11 AM – 3 PM and feature tree identification walks, planting demonstrations, and Q&A with arborists, along with activities for kids, live music, and locally sourced food and drink.
Educational tables from local environmental groups will help answer any questions you have about trees in Cary, the benefits they provide, and how to support them.
