3 Ways to Celebrate Arbor Day in Austin!  


1) Join us for a family friendly Arbor Day Celebration!

Saturday October 21st, 2017 | 10:00 am - 2:-00 pm

Austin Nature + Science Center

2389 Stratford Dr, ATX 78746

Family friendly and FREE!

RSVP on Facebook and share with your friends!

Free parking is available under the Mopac bridge. 


On-site Arbor Day Activities:

  • Tree Trail Tours – Be one of the first to walk the new tree trail at Austin Nature & Science Center.

  • Kids Climb – Have fun climbing trees! Climbing experts will assist tree climbing with harness and ropes.  

  • Nature Craft Table – Park Rangers will be on hand with their Nature Trailer. Come out and make something special and unique!

  • Ask an Arborist Booth - Got tree questions? Ask an arborist. 

  • And so much more!


2) Volunteer for Austin Community Trees Event in Highland Neighborhood! 

The Austin Community Tree program is a neighborhood tree planting program that focuses on reducing the Urban Heat Island effect by planting more trees on private property. The addition of trees can cool daytime temperatures in neighborhoods. The ACT program is offered free to eligible neighborhoods and is a partnership among neighborhoods, the Planning and Zoning Department, Development Services Department, Parks and Recreation Department, Community Court, and Austin Energy.

Register to volunteer online.


3) Join the Fun without leaving your neighborhood!

Can't make it out to the event at Austin Nature + Science Center? You can still celebrate trees where ever you may be! 

  • DEFINITELY share photos of your Arbor Day celebration and use the following hashtags, #arborday, #atx and #showusyourAustin.
