On Saturday, Oct 13 from 2:00 to 4:00pm all are invited to head to the newly re-named Greenwich Botanical Center (formerly the Garden Education Center) which will be the setting for an exciting, fun day amidst the natural surroundings of the Montgomery Pinetum. There will be activities for both children and adults.
These activities include learning more about Woodcrafts through a whittling demonstration by Eric Kamen, a local arborist and avid woodworker. Kamen creates beautiful objects from felled trees.
There will also be a Tree Bingo game and a Scavenger Hunt throughout the Arboretum.
For those people who want to identify a particular tree but aren’t able to, there will be tree ID games, a wonderful way to learn the names of trees and who lives in them.
Prizes will be awarded.
Everyone will have the opportunity to get crafty and learn artistic leaf printing techniques.
Hot cider and doughnuts will be served.
For those who want to continue exploring the Pinetum, they can stroll the newly-plaqued Arboretum in the Pinetum.
