Town of Davidson to Celebrate Arbor Day Friday, March 16
Citizens Invited to Attend Ceremony at Roosevelt Wilson Park
Please join us to celebrate Arbor Day on Friday, March 16, the same day it will be celebrated statewide. Arbor Day is designated to encourage individuals and groups to plant and care for trees. Citizens are invited to a brief ceremony at 11:00 a.m. on Friday, March 16 at Roosevelt Wilson Park, located at 420 Griffith Street.
The Town of Davidson earned recognition as a 2017 Tree City USA by the Arbor Day Foundation. This is the eighth year Davidson has been recognized as a Tree City. Community volunteers, the town’s Livability Advisory Board, TreesDavidson, and town staff all made contributions toward this achievement.
“Tree City USA communities see the impact an urban forest has in a community first hand,” said Dan Lambe, President of the Arbor Day Foundation. “Additionally, recognition brings residents together and creates a sense of community pride, whether it’s through volunteer engagement or public education.”
