Oakhill Cemetery has stories to tell.  It is the final resting place of numerous Grand Rapids leaders. Its monuments reflect the architecture of ancient Greece, Rome, and Egypt. Its trees remind us of the great forests that once covered Michigan. Trees, Treats, and Tombstones is a Halloween walking tour of this historic cemetery.  The two-hour tour will explore the trees and ecology of the cemetery, discover interesting monuments of important Grand Rapidians, and conclude with a scavenger hunt for Halloween treats.  Explorers will enjoy cider and donuts.  This tour is organized by Oakdale Neighbors with support from Friends of Grand Rapids Parks, the City of Grand Rapids, and the Urban Forestry Committee.

Meet at the cemetery office, 647 Hall SE, on Saturday, October 31 at 3:00 PM.  For more information, contact Tom Bulten at Oakdale Neighbors: 248-2848 or [email protected].
