Come celebrate autumn's arrival with our annual Harvest of the Acorn Moon festival! We'll have naturalist-guided hikes, nature crafts — including the ever-popular pumpkin painting — games, folk music, and lots of fun for the whole family. The festival is free, but there is a nominal fee for crafts and refreshments. See you at Oakhurst FP! Please note the date change. This event will be 10/8 (not 10/1, as originally noted in The TreeLine).

National Public Lands Day

​Saturday, Sept. 30; 10 a.m. sharp!
(We'll plant until 1 p.m. or until we run out of trees, whichever comes first!)
