The Prosper Parks and Recreation Department second annual Arbor Day Celebration is set for Saturday, November 3, at 9:00 am, at Pecan Grove Park, 831 Del Carmen Drive.
The morning will include a Town proclamation and remarks by local dignitaries and the Parks and Recreation Board. To further urban forestry in the Town, the celebration will feature Prosper Boy Scout Troop #365 and Prosper Girl Scout troop #6807, who will plant trees in the park to commemorate the day. Also, the winner of the 2018 Prosper Champion Tree Contest and the largest Bur Oak in Prosper will be announced.
Prosper’s Arbor Day happening serves to celebrate the role and importance of trees in our lives. The trees are planted to reflect hope in the future. The simple act of planting a tree shows concern for the well-being of future generations in that the tree will grow and provide erosion control, shelter from the wind and sun, beauty and inspiration for decades to come.
