ARBOR DAY Fun on Long Island – 2018

The Arbor Day Foundation promotes the planting, nurturing, and the celebrating of trees. Ways to celebrate is by visiting our local Botanical Gardens, Arboretums, and Nature Preserves. Want to have fun with your kids today? We have some fun craft ideas to help educate our kids about the importance of trees.

 

Take a walk through nature and get some beautiful pictures, today. Your kids will love looking at the flowers and trees, looking for birds and other animals and of course spending the day outside on beautiful Long Island. Where will you visit?

There’s a lot of love to share for Arbor Day weekend!
We’re donating $1 to the Arbor Day Foundation for every climber at our Adventure Park from Friday, April 27th through Sunday, April 29th. For every dollar we donate, the Foundation will plant a tree.
Yes, that includes everyone joining us for Friday night’s Glow in the Park event!
We have a special pricing for this Friday night: tickets are $41 starting at 5:00PM.
