Arbor Day Celebration in Modesto

The City of Modesto will be celebrating Arbor Day at Muni Golf Course on Friday, April 24th, 2015. We are so excited to be partnering with ValleyCrest Golf Course Maintenance and the First Tee of Central Valley Golf Program to plant a variety of new trees to further enhance the City’s beautiful 9 hole municipal golf course.

Arbor Day dates back to1832 from a vision and dream by J. Sterling Morton who wanted to transform the treeless Great Plains into an area where trees would flourish and transform the environment. Today, there are celebrations across the nation and Modesto is excited to play a part in increasing public awareness of the importance of trees in urban areas and the education of tree planting, care and protection.

Please join us for an Arbor Day Tree Planting Ceremony Friday, April 24, 2015 at 3:30 in the afternoon at Muni golf Course at 400 Tuolumne Boulevard, Modesto, California. If you are interested in donating a tree and dedicating in someone’s honor, please contact Vicki Rice at 209.577.5495.
