ARBOR DAY 2010
Saturday, April 10th, 11 a.m., City Hall Park (10001 US Highway 70)
Eric Bridges, Natural Resources Department
Come celebrate Lakeland’s ninth Arbor Day and help us plant a tree at City Hall Park. We will be offering a free tree care workshop from nationally known forestry experts and will be handing out FREE TREES.
Mayor Carmichael will receive our sixth Tree City Award.
Jacob Brown, our Arbor Day Poster contest winner will be available to personally autograph your copy of the Winning Poster.
The tree planting this year will be in memory of Lew Cornett, who died March 6th. A redbud tree will be added to the memorial tree grove at City Hall Park in his memory. The plaque will not be ready in time for the ceremony but we still want to honor Lew on that day. Staff will install the plaque with his wife, Bobbi, later the following week.
Don’t miss the chance to support our efforts to keep Lakeland a Tree City!
