Summer at the Children’s Arboretum
The planting beds at the Children’s Arboretum are filled with little trees planted at the Grand Opening in April. They are growing fast! Families that want to pick up their tree now are welcome to visit the arboretum and take their tree home. Planting instructions are posted on the fence, and you can send us a message at MarquandparkFoundation@gmail.com if you need suggestions about the best growing space for your sapling.
Our Children’s Fall Festival will take place on October 5, 2019. We are planning to plant seeds together, have fun with acorns, and enjoy cookies and lemonade. Please drop us a note if you have suggestions or like to participate in the preparations. We would love to hear from you.
Note: trees not picked at the time of the festival will be planted in the park or distributed elsewhere.
In the meantime, if you happen to drop by for a visit at the Children’s Arboretum, your little trees would appreciate being watered. The brown plastic storage box has watering cans. A large drum is usually filled with water or you will find water at the fountain close to the sandbox.
