National Arbor Day

As part of the Goodlettsville Tree City USA program, Goodlettsville Parks and Recreation is providing activities related to National Arbor Day.  Register for programs at the links provided in each program detail.

Forests Forever

The earth's forests are being depleted faster than they are being replenished.  Deforestation is a major environmental issue as cities and roads have been built in areas that were once home to thriving forest ecosystems.  This impacts not only the trees and plants, but also the wildlife that depend on the forest for their food.  Children will become involved in replenishing the forest in this great activity.

This takes place at the Delmas Long Community Center on Friday, April 28th - National Arbor Day, at 10am.  Register for this free program here.
