Cramerton Arbor Day Celebration

  • Goat Island Cramerton, NC 28032 (map)

Join the Cramerton Parks and Recreation and City of Belmont-Government as we host our annual Arbor Day Celebration. 

We're switching things up this year and hosting a whole bunch of interactive and educational activities! We will kick the day off with the ceremonial tree planting, but we're not stopping there, we also have two other trees the we need YOU, the community to help us plant. 

We'll follow that up with an educational and information canopy hike with representatives from the Carolina Thread Trail and Catawba Lands Conservancy!

After the hike we will be holding our first ever Goat Island Park scavenger hunt! Families, teams, or individuals will work to complete a series or puzzles to find locations on the island that hold clues to the final puzzle. The first to complete the scavenger hunt will win a Goat in the Boat gear pack and all finishers will receive a smaller prize! **Scavenger Hunt will end at 1pm. All teams must be complete by that time to receive a prize**

Throughout the day we are going to have the Crowned Sparrow Co. on site doing interactive, handmade crafts with kids and adults that are made from real fallen trees on Goat Island Park!

The Cramerton Community Committee will be set up giving out information about bat houses (and the bajillion mosquito they eat a night) and pollinator gardens and the Belmont Environmental and Sustainability Board will be out tell people and demonstrating all the awesome stuff about composting! We will also be sending everyone home with free saplings to plant in their yards (while supplies last).

We will also have the Shred-It truck out to help everyone get rid of all their paper products in the most environmentally friendly way possible!
