Arbor Day Celebration Wednesday April 14

Join the City of Vancouver this Wednesday from 11am-Noon for our official Arbor Day celebration!

We'll be at the Mayor's Grove in Marshall Community Park, 1009 E. McLoughlin. This year's celebration theme, "Planting Trees Today for our Children's Tomorrow," highlights the benefits of urban trees for future generations.
Featured events include a ceremonial tree planting, giveaway of free tree seedlings, children's crafts and activities, Mac Award ceremony and a presentation of awards for the City of Vancouver and Clark Public Utilities' urban forest efforts.
Vancouver will be recognized as Tree City USA for the 21st consecutive year and will also receive the prestigious Tree City USA Growth Award for further commitment to promoting urban tree canopy.

Commissioner Carol Curtis will also accept an award honoring Clark Public Utilities for TreeLine USA for the 11th consecutive year!

Thank to sponsors US Forest Service, Washington State Department of Natural Resources and Clark Public Utilities, for helping the City of Vancouver celebrate the legacy of urban trees.
