Leon County Government and the City of Tallahassee invite citizens to celebrate Arbor Day by planting trees at Apalachee Regional Park, 7550 Apalachee Parkway, on Saturday, Jan. 20, at 9 a.m. This is a fun opportunity for volunteers to reconnect with the earth, while helping increase the beauty of the area.

This year, planting includes a diverse mix of over 165 native trees, including large shade trees such as Live Oak, Nuttall Oak and Black Tupelo. Volunteers are asked to bring gloves, shovels, rakes and friends.

Leon County and the City of Tallahassee have a long history of celebrating Arbor Day. Last year, hundreds of trees and shrubs were planted by friends and families at Lake Henrietta Park.
