Home Stretch: One Month till Arbor Day

Now that it is finally spring, and warmer weather is (hopefully) here to stay, it’s time to turn our attention to the next big event – no not the Final Four – Arbor Day!

What better way to celebrate our trees and urban forest than by getting your hands dirty helping support it? There are so many ways to get involved this Arbor Day. Kicking off the festivities is Earth Day, which falls on April 22. We’ll be tackling our largest planting of the year, Suitland Parkway, and you can join friends and help clean up the Anacostia River, or put your citizen science skills to the test and volunteer at the Kenilworth Aquatic Gardens.

The festivities really ramp up on Arbor Day Eve at the Fourth Annual Canopy Awards – get your tickets to revel in the fun. No matter where you are in the DMV, Arbor Day celebrations are everywhere. What better way to spend Arbor Day than on the National Mall inventorying trees?

Regardless of how you celebrate our trees, although we do hope it’s with us, we appreciate your continued support of our mission. We couldn’t restore, enhance, or protect the urban canopy of our nation’s capital without you.
