Bring the whole family to celebrate Arbor Day at Taltree Arboretum & Gardens Saturday, April 23. Admission all day is free for kids 12 and under.

The festivities kick off at 10 a.m. with our Plant Hero 5K fun run at Taltree, 450 West 100 North in Valparaiso. This family-friendly trail run is open to runners and walkers of all skill levels. Participants are encouraged to dress as their favorite heroes.

Registration, which includes a t-shirt, is $20 before April 20 and $25 after April 20. Register at http://www.taltree.org/event/planthero/.

Stay after the race for the Arbor Day Festival from 11:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. In the true spirit of Arbor Day, Taltree Arborist Craig Gress will plant several trees around our 330-acre property throughout the day.

There are plenty of activities planned to keep our youngest guests entertained. The festival features a Silly Safari Animals visit from Coyote Chris, lawn games, a rock climbing wall presented by the Indiana National Guard, train rides on the Sprout Express, musicians playing in the children’s Adventure Garden and more.

Visitors of all ages will love spending time in our signature Railway Garden, where our trains will be running among scenes telling the story of our nation’s steam engine past. Taltree’s Fairy House exhibit will be on display and self-guided tours will be available. A variety of food trucks will provide plenty of tasty treats throughout the day as well.
