I have to admit, I didn’t know much about Arbor Day Celebrations until my daughter needed some extra credit in her science class. The teacher gave a couple of percentage points on a test to the students who attended the Arbor Day celebration last year. Basically, it’s a day to celebrate trees. In 2011, the celebration was held at Katzakian Park and volunteers actually helped plant several trees throughout the park. They were even giving away free trees for people to take home and plant in their yards. I love free. I’m not sure what all the celebration holds this year, but it’s definitely worth attending no matter your age. Bring your school aged children and some day you might have the opportunity to share the memory of the day with your grandchildren under the shade of the tree you planted.

This year, the event will be held at DeBenedetti Park (2350 S. Lower Sacramento Rd.) from 10am-2pm on April 7. Come learn about tree pruning and maintenance, mistletoe, and celebrate the completion of Phase I of Lodi’s newest park.
