Join in the commemoration of our 25th anniversary and ring in the future! Enjoy music in the gardens featuring guitarist Larry Anderson and bluegrass band Sons of Ralph. Meet artist Terry Ashley, whose exhibit is currently on display at the Arboretum, and watch demonstrations by members of the Carolina Mountain Woodturners. Discover the history of the Arboretum on a heritage hike, and learn about the role of the American Chestnut in Appalachian life in an informative lecture. Geocaching, children’s activities, and a 5K time trial are also planned for the day.
