Some communities don't observe Arbor Day. But in Cedaredge, Arbor Day is a big deal.
On April 24, the Cedaredge Tree Board observed Arbor Day with fifth grade students from Cedaredge Elementary School.
The Cedaredge Tree Board is partnering with the fifth grade students from the Cedaredge Elementary School to plant three specimen trees at the southeast area of the Cedaredge Middle School grounds on Tuesday, April 24, at 10 a.m. Included in the celebration will be the reading of the proclamation by Mayor Gene Welch.
Neither cold, rain nor snow prevented the Cedaredge Tree Board from hosting the town's annual Arbor Day event. Weather did postpone it until a day later to last Wednesday, when the morning conditions were just about ideal.
The Cedaredge Tree Board is partnering with the fifth grade students from Cedaredge Elementary School to plant two trees at the east side of the skate park in High Country Park on Tuesday, April 26, at 10 a.m. Included in the celebration will be the reading of the proclamation by newly elected mayor Gene Welch.
Special needs transition students from Delta High School have been gaining community work experience by helping city parks staff at Confluence Park.
"They came down and cleaned up the edge of Confluence Lake three separate days and we planted the tree on their fourth visit ... they have been a great help to us and were a lot of fun!" explained parks manager Tony Bohling.
