City's Arbor Day celebration to be low-key yet tree-mendous

Apr 05, 2023

The City of Rehoboth Beach will celebrate Arbor Day on Friday, April 21, with a tree-planting ceremony with fourth- and fifth graders from Rehoboth Elementary School. The ceremony will begin at 10 am at the park on 3rd Street between Kent and Cookman streets.

Students will participate in hands-on activities, and a Delaware forest ranger will give a talk and demonstration on how to correctly plant and care for young trees. Students also will sing the Tree Song. Mayor Stan Mills will present an Arbor Day proclamation.

In addition, the Rehoboth Art League will recognize local grade-level winners of the statewide student Arbor Day poster contest sponsored by the Delaware Forest Service. All posters created by Rehoboth Elementary fourth- and fifth-graders will be on display at City Hall beginning April 21.

The City of Rehoboth Beach is celebrating its 32nd consecutive year as an Arbor Day Foundation-recognized Tree City USA. This recognition signifies that Rehoboth Beach has demonstrated a commitment to caring for and managing its public trees.
