The Cora Hartshorn Arboretum in New Jersey will hold a special teddy bear clinic event. The sessions will be on Saturday Sept. 10, along with a parade.

The Cora Hartshorn Arboretum also has a bird sanctuary. The organization hopes its teddy bear clinic will help inspire children to protect and help birds and animals.

Also the event will help children learn more about animals and get their favorite stuffed animals checked. Specialists will be on hand to stitch-up and repair damaged stuffed animals.

“This is our first teddy bear parade,” Nicole Esposito, environmental educatior at the arboretum told The Item. “We’re really looking forward to seeing the residents of Millburn and Short Hills bring their stuffed animals to the arboretum.”

The sessions will begin at 11 AM. There will be a second session at 2 PM as well. Then the visitors can watch or participate in a stuffed animal parade.The parade will use the trails in the arboretum’s woodlands.

Of course, that’s not all. The Arboretum will host additional events, too. Among them will be sessions about black bears and how they are like humans. The staff will also teach children what to do if they see a bear in real life. So, if you are free this weekend and are in the area, go to the event. It shapes up to be interesting.
