The Arboretum will be hosting a children’s booth at the Waterloo Farmer’s Market tomorrow from 9:00 to 11:00 a.m.  We will have all the supplies on hand to make tissue paper autumn trees  — in honor of our upcoming Fall Harvest Festival, of course!

The farmer’s market is located in the Riverloop Expo at 327 West 3rd Street in downtown Waterloo.

Have you marked the Arboretum’s annual Fall Harvest Festival on your calendar?  You won’t want to miss this fun weekend!  Surrounded by fields of corn and soybeans, the Arboretum has strong ties to Iowa agriculture.

The Fall Harvest Festival, held the third weekend each September, not only marks the end of a growing season, but is a joyful celebration of autumn and the summer’s success.  The festival is the Arboretum’s signature event, a family weekend for the Cedar Valley community and Northeast Iowa.
