Arbor Day a Great Success!
Last Friday, April 26, was a picture perfect spring day! Charlottesville was alive with so many different Arbor Day activities. Pictured here are Mayor Huja with tree steward Robin Hanes and members of the “Roots and Shoots” group who planted four serviceberries by Riverview Park.
Earlier in the day a Landmark Tree plaque was unveiled at Quarry Park to celebrate the mighty sycamore. Tree steward Nancy Weiss spoke about the tree’s history, and compared it to other champion sycamores.
Thanks to Robin Hanes and Cindy Cartwright, talent specialist teacher at Johnson and Clark Elementary Schools, busloads of first-graders enjoyed tree-related activities at Riverview Park throughout the day. Keep reading for more photos of tree stewards in action…
