The Sonoma community will be celebrating Arbor Day 2019 on April 26.
Arbor Day was first observed in the state of Nebraska in 1872 with the planting of more than a million trees. Since then, Arbor Day has been recognized throughout the nation and the world as a day to support efforts to protect trees and woodlands, and to urge citizens to plant trees that promote the well-being of current and future generations.
Sonoma’s Arbor Day festivities include:
10 am - 11 am: Plaza Tree Scavenger Hunt for kids 5- 12 years of age. Sonoma Ecology Center will facilitate the scavenger hunt. Bring your class and enjoy a morning of learning and celebrating trees..
11 am: Arbor Day program in the amphitheater featuring music, poetry, the history of the trees in the Plaza and remarks by the Mayor Harrington, Supervisor Gorin, and Senator Dodd.
The annual Arbor Day program is brought to you by the City of Sonoma and the Community Services & Environment Commission.
