Upcoming Events

CPOP will be hosting a booth and selling our beautiful t-shirts at this Saturday's Forest Faire. Formerly held in the Vollintine-Evergreen Historic District, this event will offer presentations on choosing the right tree for the right place, tree planting, tree ID, vendors, children's activities, music, information on grants for neighborhoods, and tours of the only level 4 arboretum in West Tennessee. Admission is free. Bring a picnic basket! Rain or shine at Memphis Botanic Garden, 750 Cherry Road.

Presented in conjunction with National NeighborWoods month, sponsored in part by the Alliance for Community Trees and the Home Depot Foundation.

SUNDAY, OCTOBER 26, 10:00am to 11:30am. Meet at the end of Old Forest Lane, next to the Rainbow Lake parking lot, for a free guided 1.5-mile walk through the Old Forest at Overton Park. Kids are welcome!

FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 7, 6:00pm-8:00pm. Meet at the East Parkway pavilion. CPOP will be leading the first ever night hike through the Old Forest in conjunction with the Park Friend's Hayride. Each hike will last about 20 minutes, and we will start a new hike every thirty minutes. Kids are welcome! Bring a flashlight!

The PFI Hayride is a family event that will take you on a mule drawn wagon along the road next to the Old Forest. There will also be a campfire where you can warm up with s'mores and hot chocolate. This event is also free.
