Ever wonder why we "knock on wood" to avert bad luck? Or why we put a sprig of holly up at Christmas? What trees mentioned in the Bible grow at Hoyt? What tree did Buddhist monks probably save from extinction? We'll find out as we explore the many trees that are associated with different religions of the world on this special Easter tour. Meet at the Visitor Center; registration is not required. Free event!
