Come lend a hand and experience the Arbor Day Celebration on Saturday, April 25! Parker Parks and Recreation will be celebrating by planting trees at Salisbury Park starting at 9 a.m. You’re invited to help plant around 40 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!
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 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 piece to keeping Parker named as a “Tree City USA.” The Tree City USA® program is sponsored by the Arbor Day Foundation in cooperation with the USDA Forest Service and the National Association of State Foresters. Parker has been named as a Tree City USA for each of the last 22 years! In order to maintain this title, a commitment must be made to enhance the public’s awareness of trees within the community through events and educational opportunities such as the annual Arbor Day Celebration.
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.
