Arbor Day is a City of Allen Parks and Recreation Department event sponsored by Keep Allen Beautiful, the Allen Garden Club and Montgomery Farm Gardens which will be held Saturday, October 26 from 9 a.m. to 12 noon at Bethany Lakes Park.
The event will feature demonstrations by certified arborists such as tree climbing, pruning, and general care of plants. Keep Allen Beautiful is sponsoring a tree sale and an Arbor Day tree dedication, with the tree being donated by Montgomery Farm Gardens. The event will include eco-friendly activities and music for the entire family.
For additional information regarding the tree sale, please look for the Trees for Allen flyer in your City of Allen October Utility Bill, or at KeepAllenBeautiful.com home page.

Posters are due to Kathy Keller-Mielke at City Hall by December 13. Please visit Public Education & Outreach page (link below) for this year’s guide and contest rules.
