Arbor Day at Castle Rock
May 5 @ 9:00 am – 1:00 pm
Arbor Day is a Day for celebrating trees. In Nebraska in 1872 J Sterling Morton proposed the idea of a day to plant trees, “Arbor Day”. On that day prizes were offered for the county that could plant the most trees properly. One Million trees were said to have been planted on that first Arbor Day. By 1882 States all across the country were celebrating Arbor Day.
Join The Parks and Recreation Department for our Annual Arbor Day Celebration at Castle Rock Park! Our Parks are home to over 10,000 trees! We understand the importance and many benefits that trees provide to our park users and community as a whole. From providing shade to storm water management, urban temperature regulation to increasing property values, trees have a larger impact on our everyday lives than we often recognize.
This year, we will be holding Arbor Day on May 5th and will consist of Tree Planting, educational booths for SD2 fourth graders, the official Arbor Day Ceremony, and planting of the Arbor Day Tree.
