Tree City Easton!
April 30 @ 5:30 pm
This Arbor Day let’s celebrate Easton for being a Tree City USA* for 21 years!
Join the celebration on Friday April 30th at 5:30 pm at the Blue Bridge on the Karl Stirner Arts Trail.
Following a reading of the Tree City Proclamation and the revealing of ‘Trees of Easton’ Posters**, there will be a guided walk by City of Easton Forester, Rob Christopher, to explore the trees along KSAT.
COVID precautions will be followed including social distancing.
*Tree Cities maintain a tree board or department, have a community tree ordinance, spend at least $2 per capita on urban forestry and celebrate Arbor Day.
**Do you have a tree in your life that you would love to recognize? Do you admire a certain tree on your walk around town? Nominate it to be features on a “Trees of Easton” Poster!
We are asking residents to nominate a tree for inclusion in the poster by submitting a high-resolution photograph, along with your name, the location of the tree, the kind of tree (if known) and finally, a sentence or two on why you chose the tree. 12 – 16 photographs will be selected by NNC’s resident artist, Tom Maxfield and Easton’s City Forester, Rob Christopher. Those who are selected will be credited, given a free poster and receive our sincerest “thank you” at our Arbor Day poster reveal. The poster will be available locally (recommended $5 donation) with proceeds to support NNC programming. Please email your submissions to [email protected] by April 16th.
