The City of Lake Oswego is getting a head start on celebrating National Arbor Day, April 24, with a lineup of festivities beginning this week.
It’s no wonder. Trees are a big deal here in Lake Oswego, where citizens are proud of their urban forest and the city government has put ordinances in place to protect it.
You can find a full schedule of activities online. They include:
- a Heritage Tree dedication on April 7 in the Forest Highlands neighborhood
- Heritage Tree walk on April 8 at Luscher Farm
- Tree planting and poetry reading on April 9 at Lake Oswego’s newest park on Sunningdale Road
- Arbor week crafts project at the Lake Oswego library on April 11
- Stewardship opportunities with Friends of Southwood Park, Friends of Iron Mountain, Glenmorrie Neighors and Friends of Springbrook Park.
