Announcement: Christmas and Conservation


Every year we see thousands of holiday decorations and wrapping paper stock the shelves of stores for people to buy for the winter season, and then turn around and throw away at the fisrt sign of wear. Why should we buy new decorations every year and add to our already overflowing landfills when we can make beautiful ones from materials around us just as easy? That is why the Arboretum is encouraging you to come out on Dec. 11th from 7pm to 9pm for a fun night of learning to make Eco-friendly Christmas decorations, eating Frost-Your-Owns and sipping hot chocolate by the fireplace. The decorating supplies will be provided. We hope to see you there!!
