Bay View Elementary students join forces with Pacific Gas & Electric Company and the City of Santa Cruz Parks and Recreation Department on Earth Day Monday, April 22 from 1:00 pm to 2:00 pm to plant trees on the campus of Bay View Elementary School.
Presented in celebration of National Arbor Day and Earth Day, the purpose of the tree planting is to reduce the community’s carbon footprint and promote tree canopy at local schools.
“Trees are a vital component of our town; they provide both environmental and economic benefits. A community, and its citizens, that recognizes these benefits and provide needed care for its trees deserve recognition and thanks,” said John Rosenow, President of the National Arbor Day Foundation.
For more information on this tree planting project please call the City Forester, Leslie Keedy, 831-420-5246.
