Arbor Day Celebration

The City of Southport Forestry Committee is pleased to present the annual Arbor Day Celebration! Join us at Ft. Johnston Garrison Lawn on Friday, April 29th at 11:00 am for a brief presentation and refreshments to celebrate Southport’s Tree Heritage. There will also be an introduction of the new Southport Tree Walking tour for attendees to enjoy in the surrounding downtown area.


Learn how to protect and conserve the environment at Southport NatureFest. Held April 30th at Franklin Square Park and Indian Trail Meeting Hall, this event is a great opportunity to engage and learn about our wonderful natural environment. Meet local experts who can answer all your questions and provide guidance on creatures, gardening, and more. Check out the exhibits from 8:30 am until 12:30 pm, or bring the whole family to one of the many scheduled activities, like the bird boating tour, or kayak outing through the Adventure Kayak Company of Southport.
