2016 Arbor Day Celebration

GRAHAM CELEBRATES ARBOR DAY on Saturday, April 16 from 10:00am – 12:00pm at the Captain White House in Graham.


The Graham Appearance Commission, in partnership with the Children’s Museum of Alamance, Graham Public Library and the Alamance Arts Council, is proud to sponsor the annual Arbor Day celebration. The front lawn of the Captain White House, located at 312 S. Main Street, will be turned into a festival of arts and crafts, educational displays and hands-on activities highlighting North Carolina’s plants and forests.


Among the many activities being offered will be a planting station for kids to pot a marigold plant to take home, a table to make “dirt cake”, a storyteller, face painting, and a state forest ranger on hand to answer questions and give away red oak tree seedlings.


As a Tree City USA, celebrating Arbor Day has become a Graham tradition.  This year’s celebration will be bigger and better than ever.  Families and visitors are invited to come and enjoy this unique community event.
