Friday, April 30

9 AM – 3 PM


Join Klehm Arboretum & Botanic Garden for our annual Arbor Day Celebration! Festivities will include a tree giveaway (while supplies last), free admission for the day, a free guided walking tour of Klehm’s paved paths, tree plantings throughout the grounds, and free downloadable Arbor Day materials.

  • Tree Giveaway: Back for another year is the drive-thru free tree seedling giveaway, which will take place in Klehm’s parking lot between 9 AM and 3 PM, or while supplies last.* (Tree giveaway is limited to one tree per vehicle.)
  • Free Admission: Admission is free for the day, so stay a while and explore after picking up your free tree! What better way to celebrate Arbor Day than a beautiful spring walk through the woods!
  • Free Guided Walking Tour: Celebrate Arbor Day learning about trees and Klehm Arboretum’s unique history beginning as a tree nursery on a free guided walking tour along Klehm’s paved walking path. The tour will begin at 10 a.m., leaving from Klehm’s Visitors Center. Bring a mask for indoor use, and for use outdoors when physical distancing is not possible. Space is limited, so pre-registration is requested to reserve your space. If any openings remain, walk-ins will be permitted on a first-come, first-served basis. Register for the walk here.
  • Free Arbor Day Materials: Get the kids involved! Read a fun Arbor Day poem together, color a selection of Arbor Day-themed coloring pages, quiz each other on tree facts, or take a moment to learn more about the history of Arbor Day! All materials can be downloaded at home and select materials will be available for pick up at Klehm’s Main Visitors Center.

*Tree supplies are limited, and early attendance is encouraged. We cannot guarantee that every individual will receive a free tree.
