Mark your calendars! The City of Portland is partnering with the Portland Farmer's Market to celebrate Arbor Day 2016 at the PSU Park Blocks (SW Park and Montgomery) on Saturday, April 30, 2016.
Our story project focuses on Our Storied Connections with Trees. We want to hear from you, so send your tree story to: TreeStory@portlandoregon.gov. In 500 words or less, please describe a tree that has been significant to you and why. Be sure to include information about type of tree (if you know) or names by which the tree was known. Also, where the tree was located. Feel free to send photos, too!
We plan to share these stories with the general public on our Urban Forestry website and as part of our greater art project, The Year in Tree Stories. By submitting your stories and/or photos, you consent to use of these by the City of Portland for any lawful purpose, including, for example, promotion of Urban Forestry programs, publicity, illustration, advertising and web content.
Join us at Arbor Day! There will be opportunities for visitors to add their tree stories to our story tree, arts and crafts for the kids and adults, information about trees and tree care, tree seedling giveaways, historical and heritage tree tours led by a local historian, music, storytelling and much more!
For more information, please contact: Nik.Desai@portlandoregon.gov
