Where to celebrate Arbor Day in the Inland Northwest
SPOKANE, Wash. — April 29 marks the 50th anniversary of Arbor Day, a national holiday to recognize the importance of trees.
The Inland Northwest isn’t the type of region to shy away from it’s love of trees, so there are several local events planned for the special day.
The Spokane Parks and Recreation Department is celebrating Arbor Day with an event at the Finch Arboretum. Rain or shine, Spokane Urban Forestry will present free family activities, tree care and environmental education for all.
Participants are invited to tour the trees, nature, and history of the John A. Finch Arboretum at the family and photo-friendly event. Pets are not allowed at the arboretum.
The City of Coeur d’Alene will also be holding an Arbor Day event at East Sherman Pocket Park. It will feature multiple tree plantings, tree information, door prizes, and more. There will also be a ceremony to present the city with the Tree City USA Award for the 38th year.
The event at the Finch Arboretum begins at 11 a.m. on April 30, and the Coeur d’Alene celebration is on April 29, also at 11 a.m.
