Annual Arbor Day Celebration

Friday, April 19, 2019

Riverwood Park, 3300 Riverwood Dr. Hastings

All residents of Hastings are invited to participate in this event. An estimated 10 trees of varying variety will be planted.  The ceremony will begin with the reading of the Arbor Day Proclamation by a representative from City Hall.  Then volunteers will be instructed in the proper planting of the trees.  When the trees have been set, mulched and watered, the work will be done.  Snacks and beverages will then be provided by the Hastings Park and Recreation Department.  Contributing sponsors for the event are Dakota Electric Association, Modern Woodmen Insurance, and Catholic United Financial.  Dress for the weather and if possible bring either a garden rake or pointed shovel.  Potential volunteers should call City Forester, Paul Mahoney at 651-480-6177.
