The Town of Carolina Beach and the town’s Beautification Committee will celebrate Arbor Day on Friday, April 29, 2022.  The main program will be at Carolina Beach Elementary School beginning at 9 am on the

playground of the school with the planting of a Live Oak tree.  The tree was donated by the Friends of Carolina Beach Parks and Greenways. CBES Fifth Grade students will participate by leaving rocks painted by each student during their art class at the base of the tree once planted.  The rocks, which were donated by the committee, represent one of the students’ legacies for the school as they move on to the

Sixth Grade next year.  Reading of the Mayor’s Arbor Day Proclamation and a short educational presentation on the meaning of Arbor Day and the importance of trees and their care will be part of the program. NHCO Schools Maintenance staff will actually prepare the planting area and plant the tree.

The second part of the celebration includes members of the Beautification Committee and volunteers meeting at the Lake at 2:30 pm and planting a few more trees including three more Live Oaks donated by the Friends of Carolina Beach Parks and Greenways.  No formal program is planned at this time, but if you would like to join in, come on down.  The slow growing trees are being planted in complement with the town’s Lake Park Master Plan.  As the trees mature they will provide beauty, shade, wildlife habitat, and erosion control.
