Arbor Day Tree Scavenger Hunt

Join this fun, family friendly scavenger hunt across Loveland's parks!

Learn how to identify trees! The Tree and Environment Committee invites you to a fun, family friendly scavenger hunt on Saturday, April 29 from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. All ages welcome. Participants will identify eight trees on their hunt.

Explore at your own pace and visit the locations in the order you prefer. Walk, bike or drive to the locations!

As you explore the parks, trees will be identified and marked. Take your picture by the trees to show you’ve found them!

Arbor Day Party in the Park

The event will conclude with an Arbor Day celebration at Kiwanis Park (236 Wall St.) from 3-4 p.m. Join the committee for prizes and fun — and have a chance to share your pictures with your fellow explorers!

  • Meet at the back of the park near the Matt Haverkamp Foundation Dog Park — feel free to bring Fido to the festivities.
