The City of Sonoma's Annual Arbor Day Celebration - a day to plant, nurture and celebrate trees in the Sonoma Plaza - typically takes place in the month of April. This is a great opportunity for school children to participate in the many fun activities designed to educate and inspire stewardship of the environment. Event held rain or shine.
Past Arbor Day Celebrations have included guided walks through the City's Mountain Cemetery, a tree scavenger hunt led by the Sonoma Ecology Center, and an Arbor Day Program in the Sonoma Plaza Amphitheater, Featuring Music, Poetry, the History of the Trees in the Plaza, the Presentation of the Conservation Award by Rotary Club of Sonoma Valley and Remarks by our local representatives.
Following the Arbor Day Program, the City of Sonoma Parks Team plants a new tree, rose tree, or shrub in the park.
The Annual Arbor Day program is brought to you by the City of Sonoma and the Community Services & Environment Commission with a Special "Thank You!" to all the organizations who help to make the Celebration of Arbor Day possible:
