This unique event offers families the chance to enjoy nature walks, crafts, storytelling sessions and meet-and-greets with caring neighbors including Louisville-area first responders and other community helpers, such as librarians, postal workers and more. Daniel Tiger will also make a special appearance. Additionally, children can receive a free tree seedling at the event, which they can take back to their own neighborhoods to plant.
