Festivities will be held rain or shine. Bring the family and enjoy planting stations for children big and small as well as make seed balls for wildflowers and other crafts. Try out a “Plant Swap” and pick up free native plants and trees (while supplies last), including Eastern Red Bud trees, cardinal flowers, swamp milkweed and more.
