Adirondack Chairs


Adopting a Tree

Tree sponsorships are available for a donation of $5,000. If you adopt a tree, your name will be added to a tree sponsor plaque in the growing urban forest in Hammock Grove. Note that specific trees on the Island cannot be selected.

Our Adiron­dack chairs are spread through­out the Island so vis­i­tors can sit back and take a moment to relax any time dur­ing their vis­it, and they are fre­quent­ly moved around by vis­i­tors and Island staff. Bench­es and ham­mocks are more sta­tion­ary options. If you wish to fundraise for your adop­tion, we can set up a per­son­al fundrais­ing page that you can dis­trib­ute to your network.
