A non-denominational event, the Festival of Trees transforms the Environmental Education Center into a joyful spectacular featuring a remarkable display of holiday trees, designed and created by local groups, clubs, businesses, and individuals who select the theme and decorate in their own style with their personal artistic ability. The annual Central Jersey holiday tradition provides a great way for families to enjoy the festivities of the holiday season.
