Celebrate the 2021 Birthday of Trees with the Montpelier Tree Board
The 2021 Festival of Trees goes outdoors this year with the 2021 Festival of Trees Scavenger Hunt. Go to https://www.montpelier-vt.org/1218/Festival-of-Trees to find the Tree Board Scavenger Hunt. Use the Hunt to go outside and take some time to get to know the trees you see every day at your house, on your street, in your neighborhood or on a walk through Montpelier. Take a Scavenger Hunt selfie with your favorite tree and email it to the Tree Board Chair, John Snell, email@example.com, between January 24 and 31, to be eligible to win a prize!
Remember, let's stay safe and healthy, so when you walk outside, dress for the weather and "Masks on faces, 6 foot spaces, uncrowded places"
Although we can't hug our human friends right now, we can hug a tree.
