Judging and awards will be at noon. The winner will be named on our Wings trophy! Email Chris Pratt at chrispratt222@gmail.com (link sends e-mail) for more info.

  • Swap spring plants with your neighbors at the ANA’s 1st Plant Swap
  • And enjoy all your Audubon neighbors all in one place!

This year’s WingDing will again be a green, zero waste event – so bonus points if you arrive by bus, bike or on foot. We plan to host the City of Minneapolis Portable Drinking Water Fountain/Bottle Filler station. Bring your own water bottle and GET A FREE TICKET for food or games!

In case of rain, events will be held inside Northeast Middle School.

We’ve also invited our famous Audubon Turkeys to make a showing for the event like they did last year!

Arbor Day at Logan Park Friday April 29th

Arbor Day Celebration at Logan Park

Minneapolis Arbor Day 2.jpg

Join the Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board (MPRB), Northeast Minneapolis neighbors and tree lovers of all ages at the 2016 Minneapolis Arbor Day Celebration at Logan Park on Friday, April 29, 4-8 pm. This spectacular celebration of trees offers something fun for the whole family and the opportunity to help plant more than 130 new trees at Logan Park.

The party starts at 4 pm with landscape-scale yard games like giant checkers using tree cookies, tree-sized ladder golf and giant Kubb, bucket truck rides and rope-and-saddle tree climbing supervised by professional arborists. For kids, there will be a tree-themed nature play zone, bounce house and free dinner sponsored by Minneapolis Public Schools from 4 pm to 6 pm (people aged 18 and under while supplies last).

Arborists will lead waves of tree planting excursions throughout the park beginning at every half hour interval between 4:30 pm and 6:30 pm. Family-friendly kickball games and a free concert by Your Community Band begin at 5 pm, and a special tree planting ceremony is scheduled for 6 pm. The MPRB Forestry Department will leave a large pile of free wood chips at the park for the public to take home and use in their yards and gardens.

The MPRB is also partnering with Brewing a Better Forest to offer a beer garden featuring local breweries 612 Brew, Fair State, Dangerous Man and Sociable Cider Werks, and coffee from Matchbox Coffee Shop. The Bacon-Me-Crazy and Simply Steve’s food trucks will be cooking up and selling delicious treats along 13th Avenue beginning at 4 pm.

Arbor Day attendees are encouraged to sign up for Brewing a Better Forest’s Adopt-A-Tree program, in which people can sign up to water one of the park’s new trees over the summer in exchange for a token that can be redeemed for a free beer or coffee from a number of participating local breweries and coffee shops.

People for Parks generously provided the trees that will be planted at the 2016 Minneapolis Arbor Day Celebration in memory of Carl T. Remick, Jr. Don’t miss this unique celebration of trees, spring and community on April 29, 4-8 pm at Logan Park in Northeast Minneapolis!
