Arbor Day 2017

December 17 @ 1:30 pm - 6:00 pm

Event Navigation

Join us for our 13th year of partnership with Green Gulch — celebrating all things green and beautiful, from the human heart to the buckeyes, oaks, and redwood trees.  Arbor Day was founded in 1872 by J. Sterling Morton, a newspaper editor who became the secretary of the Nebraska Territory.  Since then, many millions of trees have been planted by civic groups at Arbor Day celebrations across the country.  View a brief pictorial history by the National Arbor Day Foundation.

Arbor Day special schedule
1:30  Ceremony
2:00  Tree-planting and other restorative work
4:30  Refreshments
5:10  Meditation in Zendo (for those who can stay — sweet silence in the cool, dim light)
6:00  Homeward

As always, bring comfortable layers for changeable weather, sturdy shoes, a hat, a water bottle, and gloves if you have them.

To arrange a carpool (the lot gets crowded, and it’s fun to reduce carbon emissions), write to info@greensangha.org
