Fall Leaf Festival

John A. Finch Arboretum

>Rain or shine

This annual family event gives everyone a chance to play in the leaves, celebrate trees, sip hot cider and take a tour of the Arboretum.

Master Composters will demonstrate how to make black gold out of kitchen and garden waste. Take your family photo in our huge pile of leaves or with the scarecrow and straw bales. Enjoy hands-on projects for everyone: do a scavenger hunt, discover how to make birds welcome, and learn your leaves. Visit with the many vendors who can help you connect with your environment and with conservation of our community.

Also, explore the work done this summer to restore and replant Garden Springs Creek by Urban Forestry, with the cooperation of many fine organizations and their volunteers.

Bring your family to this free, fun event - rain or shine! Be ready to play outside no matter the weather. The event is sponsored by the City of Spokane Parks and Recreation’s Urban Forestry department.
