30th Annual Arbor Day Celebration This Saturday

Tree-Planting-arbor-dayCentral Coast residents are invited to celebrate the City of San Luis Obispo’s 30th Annual Arbor Day. It will be held Saturday from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. at Meadow Park located at Meadow and South Streets.

Participants will be able to view performances by “The Tree Circus,” a stage show by Timmy Womick, and a climbing demonstration by world-class tree climbing competitor Chad Brey.

Winning entries from the annual City sponsored Art and Prose Contest will be displayed from local elementary school students. City Council members will present each winner with a certificate and t-shirt.

The City’s certified arborists and “Annie Oak Leaf” will be there to help community participants plant new trees in the park, and learn proper tree planting, staking and care techniques for young trees.

Event sponsors will provide beverages and breakfast snacks.
