Tree Planting Celebration at Sirenia Vista Park on Friday, April 28
Cape Coral Parks & Recreation and Lee County Electric Cooperative are proud to present the 2017 Arbor Day Celebration on Friday, April 28 at Sirenia Vista Park. Both organizations are donating several trees to be planted in Cape Coral's newest environmental park.
The 6th Annual Arbor Day Tree Planting Celebration, which is open to the public, will begin at 11:00 a.m. and will conclude with the reading of Cape Coral's 2017 Arbor Day Proclamation and the planting of trees by representatives from each of the organizations. Come out and be a part of this day honoring our environment!
This will mark the 26th consecutive year that the City of Cape Coral has been recognized as a Tree City USA. The Arbor Day Foundation, in cooperation with the National Association of State Foresters and the U.S. Forest Service, sponsors the Tree City USA program. Tree City USA recognizes communities that have proven their commitment to an effective, ongoing community forestry program.
To become a Tree City USA, a community must meet four standards: a legally constituted tree board, a community tree ordinance, a comprehensive community forestry program supported by a minimum of $2 per capita, and an Arbor Day Proclamation and public tree planting ceremony. Communities must reapply for the Tree City USA designation annually.
Sirenia Vista Park is located at 3916 Ceitus Parkway in Cape Coral just north of Pine Island Road and west of Burnt Store Rd.
