Burrendong Botanic Garden and Arboretum Open Day is on Sunday 15 September.
The Official Opening will be at 10 am but people are very welcome to arrive earlier than that. There will be 15–20 stalls including a coffee van and food sales. There will be plants for sale from the Arboretum Nursery and from Bilby Blooms nursery. Activities are being organised for children and there will be a few workshops and some entertainment.
Visitors from further away might like to stay at the Caravan Park Cabins at Burrendong Dam on the other side of the road.
Alice Newton from Friends of Burrendong Arboretum says the drought has taken it's toll but staff and volunteers have worked hard watering and trying to care for plants. The Friends look forward to seeing APS NSW members on 15 September.
If you can't make the Open Day, the Arboretum is open 8 am to 6 pm daily.
Burrendong Botanic Garden and Arboretum is at 95 Tara Road Mumbil, south-east of Wellington in the Central West region of NSW.
