Residents Can Tour Laurelwood Arboretum Later This Month
Free tours given in celebration of Arbor Day.
Volunteers from Laurelwood Arboretum will offer free guided tours of the facility on Saturday, April 28.
Tours will be held at 10 a.m., 11 a.m., and noon.
Laurelwood Arboretum is a 30-acre botanically diverse property that contains woodland trails, gardens, wildlife, two ponds, and some streams. It also has hundreds of varieties of rhododendrons, azaleas, and other unusual species of plants and trees.
There is also an abundance of insecets and other wildlife in the facility.
The arboretum is in need of voluteers for this year.
Volunteers regularly host plant sales, tours, and other educational programs at the facility. Wayne resident Robert Simpson gave a presentation on the life stages of Monarch butterflies at Laurelwood Arboretum last year.
Friends of Laurelwood Arboretum is hosting a volunteer kick-off event Saturday. For more information, call 973-202-9579, visit laurelwoodarboretum.org or send an e-mai to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
