UPPER POTTSGROVE PA – Special activities to observe Easter and Earth Day, and an exploration for crawling critters, all are on the program during April (2017) at Althouse Arboretum, the park, trail system and outdoor classroom located at 1794 Gilbertsville Rd. Scheduled are:
- Forest Easter Egg Hunt, April 8 (Saturday), anytime from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Join the arboretum staff for an Easter egg hunt along its trails. Search for eggs to swap for prizes, play games, make a craft to take home, and enjoy some family fun. Admission: $5 per child.
- Volunteer Days, April 22 and 23 (Saturday and Sunday) from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily.
Celebrate Earth Day by arriving at the arboretum on either or both days to spruce it up for spring. It can be great time to “come out of hibernation,” meet friends and neighbors, make a difference in the community and environment, and be an integral part of the arboretum. Bring work gloves if you have them; if not, they’ll be provided. Refreshments will be served too.
- Nature Exploration Series, April 26 (Wednesday) from 6:30-7:30 p.m.
This is a free family education program held monthly each last Wednesday, rain or shine, from April through October. Each has a different theme; April’s program is “Creepy Crawlies.” The arboretum staff will dive into each nature topic with an activity and a short hike.
