Arbor Day @ Corning Visitor Center grounds
Apr 26 all-day

Arbor Day is the annual observance that celebrates the role of trees in our lives and promotes tree planting and care.  The tree has appeared throughout history and literature as the symbol of life.  The simple act of planting a tree represents a belief that the tree will grow and, some day, provide wood products, wildlife habitat, erosion control, shelter from the wind and sun, beauty, and inspiration for ourselves and our children.  Trees are truly gifts that keep on giving as they filter pollution from the air and even help lower energy bills through the virtue of their shade.    Arbor Day is more than a holiday. It is a promise to the earth — celebrating a desire to enrich our homes and communities with the natural abundance that trees bring to our lives.

Sharpen Your Gardening Tools

Bring your tools as we’ll have a representative from the Cleveland Knife Sharpeners Guild each day.  For a reasonable fee, non-electric pruners, loppers, hatchets, axes, grass shearers, hedge trimmers or lawn mower blades (off the mower), as well as knives and scissors, can be dropped off and sharpened while you peruse the Plant Sale offerings.  This service provides not only a new edge but corrects any issues with blade shape for quality cutting.  Friday, Noon – 5pm; Saturday and Sunday 10am-3pm.

Rain or shine event – dress appropriately. We welcome leashed dogs on our trails; please refrain from bringing them into the plant sale and food vendor areas.
