Program Type:Educational, Sustainability
Celebrate Arbor Day with us at this month’s Living Green workshop! Learn about all the benefits of trees for your landscape, for our communities, and for the planet. The program will cover proper tree selection, placement, watering, pruning, and more. The hands-on portion of this fun workshop will be an opportunity to participate in an Arbor Day Celebration tree planting in the Monarch Haven and Reading Sanctuary Garden located at the Red Mountain Branch Library in the NE corner of the parking lot.
The program includes a short overview of the Mesa Climate Action Plan and our commitment to making our city a greener community. Trees are a great solution for heat mitigation, and they help improve our air and water quality. Plus, they absorb greenhouse gasses and pollutants.
Presented by Donna DiFrancesco, Conservation Coordinator from the City of Mesa Environmental Management & Sustainability.
This program supports the City of Mesa’s Climate Action Plan (MCAP), a Mayor and Council priority initiative to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, build resilience in our community, and address the negative outcomes of a changing climate.
