Elementary students celebrate
Arbor Day with Pueblo Parks and Recreation
The city of Pueblo Parks and Recreation department will be celebrating Arbor Day with the students, parents and faculty of Columbian Elementary School on Thursday, April 25 at 2:00pm. The Arbor Day celebration will include: a proclamation read and presented to Principal Michelle Montoya by City Council District 4 Representative Ray Aguilera; planting of a tree by the students, which will be donated by the Pueblo Parks and Recreation department, several presentations by Columbian students and the announcement of the Arbor Day poster contest winners. Each of the winners of the contest will receive a tree of their own to plant.
The Pueblo Parks and Recreation department and Pueblo City Schools have made this a tradition for over twenty years. The TREE CITY USA program began in 1976 by the National Arbor Day Foundation in cooperation with the USDA Forest Service and the National Association of State Foresters, provides direction, technical assistance, public attention and national recognition for urban and community forestry programs in thousands of towns and cities across the United States. The city of Pueblo has been a proud TREE CITY USA community since for 39 consecutive years!
