Neighborhood Leaf-Out Program Shows Residents Importance of Trees The City of Santa Clarita is proud to present its annual Arbor Day Celebration, on Saturday, May 6, 2006 at Central Park. The event, which will run from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm, is held each year to educate residents about the benefits of trees as part of the world-recognized Arbor Day holiday. Central Park is located at 27150 Bouquet Canyon Road. The City’s 17th annual Arbor Day Celebration will feature live entertainment, food, tree planting activities, children’s activities, a compost workshop, and tons of environmental exhibits. Everyone in the community is invited to attend the free event, which is put on by the City’s Neighborhood Leaf-Out Program. The City will be giving away 1000 free trees and free tree mulch to those in attendance. There will also be a large slide, “moon bounce,” and bucket truck rides for the kids. A rock climbing wall and the City’s parkmobile will also be set up, providing fun for all ages.
“Our goal for Arbor Day is to show residents how important trees are to our community and to give them the knowledge they need to care for their environment,” said Robert Sartain, Arborist/Supervisor for the City. “We need everyone’s help to maintain the City’s great reputation as a clean and beautiful place to live.”
