Thank You Croton Lions!

We're constantly surprised when we meet village residents who have never been to the Arboretum—and some who've never even heard of it. Thanks to a generous donation from the Croton Lions you'll start to see a beautiful new brochure and trail map at various places around the village, inviting residents to "Discover Croton's Hidden Treasure." 
  
The Croton Lions have been serving the community for more than 75 years, raising money to help a wide variety of local organizations. We greatly appreciate their support.

POSTPONED! Winter Tree Walk with Arborist Craig Stevens

Due to the snow forecast for Sunday—and the difficulty of accessing the Arboretum because of the snow already on the ground—the Winter Tree Walk scheduled for Sunday, February 8 has been postponed. We plan to reschedule the event in April.

Join arborist Craig Stevens for our 10th annual Winter Tree Walk on Sunday, February 8, from 12 to 2 p.m. This event is free and open to the public. We will park at the entrance on Fox Road and walk into the Arboretum. Rain or shine.

Garden Tour Raises $2,700 

Thanks to the generosity of the everyone who opened their beautiful gardens and the hard work of many volunteers, the 18th Annual Croton Arboretum Garden Tour raised nearly $2,700.

The tour is the main fund-raising event for our volunteer, non-profit organization, which provides environmental stewardship for 20+ acres of wetlands and woods at the Jane E. Lytle Memorial Arboretum in Croton-on-Hudson.

The money raised will support regular maintenance, educational programs and restoration projects in the Arboretum.

"We want to thank everyone who helped make this year's tour such a success," said Arboretum President, Karen Jescavage-Bernard. "We hope you will visit the Arboretum this summer, to enjoy our boardwalk and trails."

Thank you to Judy O'Hara, a graphic designer and avid gardener who lives in Croton, for taking these beautiful photographs on the garden tour.
