From trivia and twilight tours to free trees and mulch, our favorite national landmark is bursting with activity this week, and you don’t want to miss out on the fun.

With 175 years of history residing in its hallowed grounds, one would be hard pressed to find a better trivia venue than Green-Wood (500 25th Street). Kings of Kings County Trivia night will take place on Thursday, April 25, at 7pm. Kick off the evening with a twilight tour of the cemetery, followed by team trivia with TrivWorks in the chapel. The next king (or queen) of Kings County is out there. Will it be you?

Tickets, which can be purchased online, are $15 for Green-Wood Historic Fund members, and $20 for non-members.

On April 27, get ready for a “Tu-mulchous and Tree-mendous” Saturday, as the cemetery, along with the New York Restoration Project and Million Trees NYC, offers free trees and mulch (just bring your own bag) to community gardeners.

In addition, Green-Wood horticulture experts will be on hand to answer any and all of your gardening questions.

If interested in adopting a tree, make sure you arrive early to fill out a reservation form. Trees are given away on a first-come-first-serve basis, and can only go with residents of New York City.

It’s also important to note that the trees weigh around 30 pounds, so be sure that you have a way to get it home.

For more information on either event, call Green-Wood at 718-210-3080.
