Arbor Day is a day when we celebrate nature’s gift of trees, the tall providers of shade, fruit, fun, and a habitat for many different kinds of wildlife. This Arbor Day, come out and make a difference by helping us continue to establish a dedicated tree-planting fund with the money raised at this event, and by planting some trees yourself! Together, we are making our city greener, cooler, and more beautiful.
