About LEAF The Lake Erie Arboretum at Frontier Park (LEAF) is a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit organization established in 1998 to generate a greater awareness of the trees in our lives by creating educational opportunities and outdoor experiences for the community. LEAF is home to more than 225 different varieties of trees--a collection that grows in interest and diversity each year.
Thank You! LEAF would like to thank the many volunteers who spent countless hours helping at our festivals and Drop-In Tuesdays, serving on committees and taking pictures. Plus those who weeded, mulched, pruned, picked up trash and more to keep this community treasure looking its best! You are greatly appreciated!
Thanks to our event sponsors, Erie Federal Credit Union, WSEE, City of Erie and to Knox McLaughlin, Gornall & Sennett for helping to make LEAF's 10th Annual Winterfest such a success this year! A big thank you goes to all of the volunteers and the community too for your support!
