Save your trees! Learn how to prevent severe storm damage, why pruning is critical in the aftermath, and which trees to avoid planting in the first place. Join arborist Craig Stevens for the Jane E. Lytle Memorial Arboretum’s 9th annual Winter Tree Walk on Sunday, February 2, 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.

Native American Crafts & Culture

On Saturday from 2:00 p.m. to 4 p.m. Native American crafts expert Barry Keegan will demonstrate firemaking, flint knapping and other skills at the Croton Free Library. He will also display his collection of Native American and colonial artifacts, along with authentic replicas of bows, arrows, axes, buckskin, fire-making tools and pottery. This family event is co-sponsored by the Croton Arboretum and the Croton Free Library. Here's a short film by Ken Sargeant about one of Barry's previous visits to Croton.


The Croton Arboreat'em!

Congratulations to Ethan and Aaron Lewis, who competed in Croton’s annual Halloween window painting contest this weekend and received an honorable mention for their "Croton Arboreat'em" window. Since the Arboretum officially closes at dusk we’ve never been there on Halloween. Now that we see what goes on there we’re grateful to Ethan and Aaron for the warning!
