Plans for Forest Fest 2014 are coming together and this year’s event promises to be bigger and better than ever!
FRIDAY NIGHT DINNER
For starters, we’ll kick off Forest Fest weekend with a pre-event dinner on the Trees For Tomorrow campus on Friday, Aug. 1. It will feature “That Tree” photographer Mark Hirsch, who documented a year in the life of a lone bur oak with his iPhone camera. The dinner is open to the public, but registration is required. Details including cost and registration information.
Eat like the lumberjacks of the late 1800s. Saturday morning brings a return of our popular all-you-can-eat Lumberjack Breakfast sponsored by Asplundh Tree Experts Co., from 8-10 a.m. in the Trees For Tomorrow Dining Hall. Open to the public. Cost: $7.
