On March 5th, 2016 the City of El Segundo and Tree Musketeers held their 29th Annual Arbor Day Celebration! Tall and Small volunteers came out to plant over 70 new trees, which replaced large areas of the invasive plant acacia, and to care for Trees to the Sea along Imperial Highway. The tree planting and care were followed up by lunch provided by Chevron, our Presenting Sponsor. We also had beverages and desert provided by other local businesses and a silent auction, raising funds to keep programs like Arbor Day and our Summer Leadership Courses up and running.
During our closing ceremony speeches were made by our co-founder Tara Church, Arbor Day Task Force Member Eric Busch and Scott Houston of West Basin.
Take a look at the great work our volunteers accomplished!
What is Arbor Day? Arbor Day is a day to celebrate, plant and care for trees. Arbor Day is Tree Musketeers’ largest annual event, with hundreds of volunteers participating.
When is Arbor Day? We will next celebrate Arbor Day on March 5, 2016. In California, Arbor Week is observed in March. National Arbor Day is celebrated on the last Friday in April, but most states however plan it to coincide with optimal planting season.
