Animal Crossing: New Horizons – Nature Day, May Day, & More Explained

Animal Crossing: New Horizons is getting more island visitors on April 23 thanks to a new update. Starting that day, Leif the sloth will make periodic visits to your plaza to sell seeds for flowers and shrubs, the latter being new to the game. Redd will also dock his boat at your private beach to sell furniture and art. And yes, that art can be donated to the museum’s new art wing.

The game’s next named event is Nature Day, which adds special Nook Miles+ objectives for tending to your trees, flowers, and new shrubs. The event runs from April 23 – May 4, as detailed in the video above.

This is one of several upcoming events headed to the game in the near future. May Day, which includes island tours not available via Nook Miles tickets, will overlap with Nature Day by a bit. International Museum Day and Wedding Season will follow after that.
