Red Butte Garden to celebrate Arbor Day with free entry on April 28
SALT LAKE CITY, Utah — Red Butte Garden on the University of Utah campus will celebrate Arbor Day. The public is invited to see the indoor art gallery, peruse the gift shop, and walk the grounds for free on Friday, April 28.
The Red Butte Garden webpage reads, “Trees Are Terrific! As part of Utah’s official arboretum, there’s no place better than Red Butte Garden to celebrate Arbor Day! Join us for a day filled with self-guided “tree-rific” activities and discover the vital role trees play not only in our lives but also in the natural world.”
Visitors will be welcome from 9 a.m. to 7:30 p.m.
Do you have a favorite tree in your yard or neighborhood? Download their Tree Journal to record observations of your favorite tree or your new seedling throughout the year.
Arbor Day was started in the United States in 1872 and it seeks to inspire people to plant, nurture, and celebrate trees.
Red Butte Garden’s Arbor Day celebration will include a tree seedling giveaway, while supplies last, for guests who would like to take home a tree to plant in their yard.
