Renton’s Arbor Day/Earth Day is being celebrated on Saturday, April 25th from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm at Gene Coulon Memorial Beach Park by planting trees and flowers and cleaning areas in the park.
Every year, since 1872 Arbor Day is celebrated by planting and caring for trees. Earth Day was established 1970 in response to the growing concerns over the environment. It is a day each year for people to unite to take action to protect the environment for future generations.
Here in Renton we see planting trees as a great and practical way to to help the environment. Trees help reduce soil erosion, produce oxygen and improve wildlife and fish habitats. Did you know that Renton has been recognized as a Tree City USA since 2008 by the Arbor Day Foundation?
