Earth Day 2017

Saturday, April 22

Celebrate Earth Day with the Arboretum! Join us for a fun, family friendly morning of outdoor activities and nature crafts. The morning will include:

  • Nature Hikes
  • Chemistry Demonstrations
  • Newspaper Flower Pot Making
  • And more!

We are also excited to be partnering with the Houston Zoo Nature Club and Bayou City Play to be bringing nature play materials to our playground from 10 – 11 am. Kids of all ages are invited to join the fun!

The Arboretum is also this year’s charity beneficiary for the Sawyer Yards Biannual. After the morning festivities, head over to Sawyer Yards to join us from 3 – 5 pm for the Pre-Party & Silent Auction and from 5 – 10 pm for the Spring Biannual Art Stroll & Sale. The Biannual will be featuring special one-of-a-kind, artist decorated birdhouses for sale. All birdhouse sales will benefit the Arboretum’s conservation and education programs.
