Special Events

Houston area families are invited to celebrate Arbor Day at the Houston Arboretum & Nature Center. This special holiday, in which we celebrate the beauty, benefits, and care of trees, is especially important to the Arboretum because of our responsibility as an urban nature sanctuary in the center of Houston. This free family event, held from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm on January 26 features tons of activities for children and adults alike:
  • A visit from Johnny Appleseed
  • Make paper hats
  • Free tree seedlings
  • Wildlife from Texas Wildlife Rehabilitation Coalition
  • Live owls from Wildlife Center of Texas
  • Flight demonstrations by Sky Kings Falconry
  • Native tree and shrub sale
  • Tree planting demos
  • Tree tours
  • Make a pinecone birdfeeder…and more!
Come out and join us to pick up a free tree seedling, visit with some native wildlife, and explore the forest!
