Botanicals, a Memorial Exhibition of Watercolors by Margaret Robinson

Botanical art by Margaret Anne Robinson, who passed away last year at the age of eighty-three, is on exhibit through February at the Croton Free Library

She earned a certificate in Botanical Art and Illustration at the New York Botanical Garden and was a member of the American Society of Botanical Artists and the Guild of Natural Science Illustrators. In addition to exhibiting regularly in Croton and around the United States, she made a lasting contribution to the Arboretum by doing the line drawings on our plant and tree identification signs.

There will be a reception on Sunday, February 3, from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m. at the library.


Fundraising Event at Shoprite

Reusable shopping bags will be sold in front of Shoprite on Sunday, December 23 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. The bags make great gifts and 100% of the proceeds will be donated to support the Arboretum.

The bags are made of non-woven polypropylene (NWPP), a fabric that is recyclable, non-toxic, non-allergenic, and machine washable. They were created by Feed the Birds, the local source for everything related to wild-birds, and are being sold at Shoprite by Arboretum supporter Ethan Lewis.

If you can't get over to Shoprite the bags can also be purchased at Feed the Birds, 326 South Riverside Avenue, in Croton-on-Hudson. Their holiday hours are 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. on the 22nd, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on the 23rd and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Christmas Eve.


Lions Spotted in the Arboretum! 

Clockwise from top left: Joe DiMarzo, Stephen DeName, Don Daubney, Francesca and Isabel Slippen.

The Croton Lions Club, which has been serving the community for more than 70 years, has generously donated a beautiful teak bench to the Arboretum. Lions Club president Stephen DeName, along with members Joe DiMarzo and Don Daubney, recently stopped by to see the bench and were thanked by frequent Arboretum visitors Francesca and Isabel Slippen.

The Croton Lions raise money to help a wide variety of local organizations—from the Croton Teen Theatre and Booster Club to the Little League and the Croton Caring Committee—and we greatly appreciate their support.
