Looking for a way for your family to have fun “getting out on the land,” while making a difference for the planet? Then mark your calendars for Saturday, April 30th, 2016, starting at 10:00am: The Thousand Islands Land Trust (TILT) will be hosting the 4th annual “For the Trees” Arbor Day Community Celebration at Zenda Farms Preserve in Clayton - and it’s sure to be a tree-mendous good time!

Branch out, and bring the whole family tree! Tree-related activities will be offered by our conservation partners: Minna Anthony Common Nature Center, Cross Island Farms, Indian River Lakes Conservancy, Thousand Islands Art Center and the New York State Zoo. And, as part of the celebration, Hawn Memorial Library in Clayton will be showing Ferngully, starting at 12:00pm. So start at Zenda and end up at the library!

Free seedlings will be available to take home and lunch will be provided for tree-planting volunteers. So that we have enough lunches, please register in advance to plant trees by contacting the TILT office at 686-5345, [email protected], or by signing up on our website at
