Or join Branch Out Burlington to plant trees at the UVM Horticultural Nursery in South Burlington. Musician Robert Resnik and local dance troupe On the Border Morris will provide the entertainment.

It's also the weekend of the bike swap, just in time for cycling season. Three local bike shops — Earl'sSkirack and Alpine Shop — host two-day events with a variety of road bikes, mountain bikes, kids' cycles and trailers. Get there early for the best selection!
