Special Events

Like a tiny pine seed, the Arbor Day we know today grew from an idea one man had to celebrate the usefulness of trees by planting more of them. Houston area families are invited to celebrate Arbor Day at the Houston Arboretum & Nature Center on Saturday, January 25, 2014 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. There will be many events and hands-on activities for everyone in the family to see and do:
