Come lend a hand and experience Arbor Day on Saturday, April 26, as Parker Parks and Recreation will be celebrating by planting trees at Tallman Meadow Park starting at 9 a.m.!
You’re invited to help plant around 30 trees of various species, including smaller ornamentals, shade trees and evergreens. There’s no need to sign up, just bring your own gloves and shovel. The Town will provide donuts, coffee and hot chocolate, as well as breakfast burritos generously donated by Good Times!
After the tree planting, be sure to stop by the arborist table and meet the Town’s Parks and Forestry team. They can answer questions about tree planting, pruning and tree selection. Learn how to take care of your trees and make them last. Kids will also have the opportunity to build and take home a bird house courtesy of Home Depot!
Arbor Day is a fun educational event for the whole family and is an important step in the process of keeping Parker named as a “Tree City USA” for the 20th consecutive year.
Parker Parks and Recreation will also be kicking off the Branching Out Parker tree reimbursement program that provides up to $300 in funding assistance for residents to encourage tree planting throughout the Town. More information will be available at the booth at Arbor Day, as well as on our website at www.parkeronline.org/BranchingOutParker
Please remember that the Town will not be providing shovels at Arbor Day. Tree planting, refreshments and give-a-ways will be available on a first-come, first-served basis. Parking will be available at Legend High School; please use the spots closest to the park area. For questions regarding Parker’s celebration, please call 303.805.3263 or email email@example.com.
