This event is free and open to the public and features a variety of learning and playing activities, including an Arbor Fair and a Kid’s Climb sponsored by CLIMB A TREE. The Arbor Fair will be open from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. to provide the public with information about trees, certified arborists, and tree services available in the Midland area.
