Arbor Festival Dr. TreerificPlease join us in celebrating our favorite thing "TREES" and our City's Arbor Day during the Yakima Area Arboretum's 20th annual Arbor Festival on Saturday, April 13.

This year's Arbor Fest will focus on "A Walk in the Woods" where we will be learning about what we can do out in our urban and wild forests!

Please be kind to the earth by bringing your own reusable bag to carry home all of your crafts, handouts, and other items you will collect at the Festival.

Arbor Fest is FREE to attend and celebrates not only our city, state and national Arbor Days, but spring, conservation, and natural science.  

Each year features a special theme. This year's theme is "A Walk in the Woods" where families can expect lots of hands-on learning opportunities, crafts, and displays showcasing the many things you can see and do in our urban and wild forests.  Plus, over 600 families will have an opportunity to take home their own tree to plant in their yard in honor of Arbor Day. 

Roughly 40 stations, sponsored by a variety of community organizations, will be on hand to share in the experience of this year's theme.  The Arbor Festival strives to make environmental science fun for everyone to learn!
