Join fellow runners and nature enthusiasts for the fourteenth annual Arbor Day 5K/10K Run. Proceeds will once again benefit the Arboretum’s goat herd, which is used for targeted grazing of invasive plants.
Participants will pass by the Arboretum’s goat herd as they traverse the easily navigable cross-country course plotted along the Arboretum's network of scenic forest and meadow paths. Post-race festivities include music, a “green” medal ceremony, and a native tree raffle. All registered 5K/10K participants will receive an “Arbor Day Run” T-shirt featuring the goats (see above!) and provided by Bay Imprint.
