Celebrating the community, its trees, the earth, and ways to improve and properly care for them will take place at Sustain Noblesville’s Third Annual Earth Day ArborFest from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. April 25 at Forest Park.
“This free event will be a great way for families to have fun and learn ways to protect and enhance our environment,” said Mayor John Ditslear.
The festival will be held in Forest Park Shelters 3 and 5 and at the Forest Park Aquatic Center parking lot. This year’s keynote speaker Tim Womick, also known as Appleseedz, is at 10 a.m. Womick, a nationally-known speaker, will engage and entertain all ages about the importance of trees for their community’s health and their own human potential.
Attendees also can enjoy a fundraiser breakfast and lunch provided by the Noblesville Sunrisers Kiwanis; get free seedlings as well as planting and pruning information; speak with local environmental exhibitors; recycle their e-waste items such as office equipment, small appliances and gaming systems; enjoy kids’ activities; recycle old bicycles; and much more. The event will once again feature a Community Shred Day. Documents will be shredded on site for $5 per box/bag.
