Holden Forests & Gardens Celebrates Trees Leading up to Arbor Day with Community Plantings, Free Admission, Tree Seedling Giveaway & More
All month long we celebrate the planting, care and preservation of trees. And on Friday April 30th, we have free admission day at the Cleveland Botanical Garden and the Holden Arboretum.
(CLEVELAND) March 30, 2021 – Holden Forests & Gardens (HF&G) has received a generous $200,000 grant from the Cleveland Foundation to support People for Trees™, a public awareness initiative that encourages and empowers residents in communities across Northeast Ohio to plant and care for a tree, beginning with making a pledge. The aim is to have 15,000 new trees planted by 2025.
One of the most significant things we can do to combat the effects of a changing climate right here in Northeast Ohio is to plant a tree. Today, Holden Forests & Gardens (HF&G) is launching a new initiative called People for Trees™ to make it easier for each of us to get involved with this solution.
We are excited to provide in-person day camp at both campuses this summer. Each uniquely themed camp is packed with outdoor exploration, hands-on learning, and physical and creative activities that will get kids connected to and excited about nature. Click here for details.
