Get ready to bloom with excitement as we invite you to join us for ArborFest in April!

This year, we're turning up the "Flower Power" to celebrate Washington State's Arbor Day in a vibrant and nature-inspired extravaganza. It's all about embracing the true colors, captivating scents, and unique wonders of our magnificent trees and forests.

Join us in celebrating the beauty of nature and the vital role trees play in our lives. Let's come together to create a blooming success at ArborFest 2024!

A day of fun and learning thanks to trees!

Families can expect lots of free learning opportunities, crafts, and displays showcasing the effects of forest fires. Plus, families will have an opportunity to take home their own tree to plant in their yard in honor of Arbor Day. 

Please be kind to the earth by bringing your own reusable bag to carry home all of your crafts, handouts, and other items you will collect at the festival.

More than 25+ stations, sponsored by a variety of community organizations, will be on hand to share in the experience of this year's theme. The Arbor Festival strives to make environmental science fun for everyone to learn!
