    Arbor Day Celebration

    The State of Texas will have their Arbor Day Celebration on April 25, at Veterans Park in Northeast El Paso (5301 Salem). The event will have school children from nearby Fannin Elementary performing as well as assisting with planting the trees in the neighborhood. The Arbor Day Celebration also includes a State proclamation from Governor Rick Perry and a City proclamation that will be presented by Mayor John Cook on April 8. The city has developed many innovative ways by working with various community groups to provide a greater tree canopy in the city - as recognized by these State and City proclamations.

    "Trees in the community cleanse the air, serve as an air filter and also the more trees to have they help in taking many pollutants out of the air," says Barry Russell, assistant director of the City Parks and Recreation Department.
