Post Date:01/10/2020 3:38 PM

The City of Melbourne Parks and Recreation Department invites you to join the 2020 Arbor Day Celebration:

  • January 17, from 9 a.m. until 10 a.m. 
  • Eau Gallie Square – 1453 Highland Avenue, Melbourne

This annual event aims to improve understanding of the importance of trees in our city and encourage residents to plant and maintain trees on their property. 

Mayor Kathy Meehan will read the Arbor Day Proclamation, and a representative from Trees for Life Brevard will speak. Students from Verdi EcoSchool will plant a commemorative tree. 

At the end of the event, attendees may pick up a free tree sapling to plant at home. Attendees may also participate in a raffle to win a tree. 

Many thanks to our sponsors:

  • Lucy’s in the Kitchen will be providing a craft and snack for the Verdi EcoSchool students.
  • Top Quality Treescape will be providing the saplings.
