As the temperatures rise this Spring, it is a great time to explore our local parks. The Holden Arboretum’s canopy walk and emergent tower opened for the season on April 1st and is particularly noteworthy. The canopy walk features a 500 foot long elevated walkway built 65 feet above the forest floor gives visitors a unique perspective on our forests and the animals that inhabit them. The Emergent Tower takes guests above the trees to a height of 120 feet where on a clear day you can see all the way to Lake Erie. Admission is $14 for adults; $6 for children 6 – 18; and Free for children 5 and younger. Tickets can be purchased at the Corning Visitor Center.
