Have fun in nature and plant trees with us at a free, family event! Festivities will include a Tree-athlon, tree planting, live music, bucket truck rides, tree giveaways, educational exhibitors, and much more! The Root for Trees Fest is an annual event to celebrate trees in nature. This event will connect community members with ways to plant trees and engage with their natural surroundings.
