What to see and do on Arbor Day
VISIT A JESSE OWENS OLYMPIC OAK
Holden Forests & Gardens will assist with the planting of two Olympic oak trees that were grafted from the original trees Jesse Owens received for bringing home gold medals during the 1936 Olympic Games. The first planting will be on April 28th at League Park in Cleveland in partnership with the City of Cleveland. The second planting will be on May 5th at East Tech High School in partnership with Cleveland Metropolitan School District.
PLEDGE PEOPLE FOR TREES™
Holden Forests & Gardens is entering year three of our People for Trees campaign to have 15,000 trees planted in Northeast Ohio by 2025. Already, more than 10,000 trees have been pledged, and planted and given away. But we still need more People for Trees to pledge and plant. Share your love of nature and invite a friend, neighbor, and family member to join us. Pledge at holdenfg.org/people-for-trees
