Virginia’s Natural Bridge and Historic Hotel, now under new management and owned by the Virginia Conservation Legacy Fund, has re-opened and is hosting an Earth & Arbor Day Celebration on April 26, 2014. Although Natural Bridge is located about an hour south of Harrisonburg, it is definitely worth the drive to do some sightseeing! Plus, attending during this event would be an added bonus because of all that will be happening on the grounds: family-friendly and environmentally-oriented activities beginning at 9:00 AM and continuing until 9:00 PM.
Be sure to check out all of the activities offered:
- Dogwood tree planting
- Virginia and local food-sourced lunch and dinner
- Live music
- Crafters and growers market
- Various tours and free programs
- Public E-waste collection
- Children’s art activities
- BONUS: bring a canned food donation and receive a 50% discount off admission to the Caverns and the Natural Bridge Park for the day!
The Virginia Conservation Legacy Fund owns the Natural Bridge Park & Historic Hotel, and is a nonprofit organization dedicated to the promotion of conservation, education and outdoor recreation. The Park & Hotel are addressing these goals through the development of new hiking trails, implementing a property-wide recycling program, enriching SOL-compliant educational programs, and partnering with area businesses. Local farmers and artisans will be featured in the Earth & Arbor Day Celebration along with Twin Rivers Canoe Outfitters and the Stonebridge Equestrian Center. There will truly be something for everyone!
