Cowling Arboretum Service Project
This family-friendly activity is a great way to enjoy the Arb during Reunion. The exact project is still to be determined, but we will be working near the Arboretum entrance so we will be easy to find if you come late. We will provide work gloves, tools, and drinking water and recommend that you wear long pants, socks, and closed toe shoes, and bring your own water bottle.
