Students from Shoreline Christian School will participate in the first event at 8:30 a.m. in Ellis Park, 10301 Ellis Ave. In the afternoon, parents and students from Hilltop Preschool will gather for the second event at 1:30 p.m. in Plavan Park, at 9745 Warner Ave.
At both Arbor Day events, students will learn about how to care for trees and assist in the planting of several new trees. Mayor Cheryl Brothers will be on hand to read an official Arbor Day proclamation.
The city has been named a “Tree City USA” city for the second year in a row. The national program, sponsored by the National Arbor Foundation in cooperation with the National Association of State Foresters and the United States Department of Agriculture Forest Service, recognizes environmental improvement and higher levels of tree care in Tree City USA communities.
Fountain Valley residents who are interested in assisting with the city’s reforestation efforts and beautifying their neighborhoods can arrange to have a parkway tree planted in front of their homes. For $35, the city will purchase, deliver and plant a new parkway tree. Interested residents can stop by the Public Works counter in City Hall, 10200 Slater Ave., or call 714-593-4433 for more information.
