Keep Cobb Beautiful Arbor Day Event
Celebrate Arbor Day with a vegetable and tree seedling giveaway hosted by Keep Cobb Beautiful.
Residents are encouraged to visit one of four county parks to receive vegetable garden seeds and maple and sawtooth oak tree seedlings. The giveaways will happen at: Lost Mountain Park (4845 Dallas Highway, Powder Springs), East Cobb Park (3322 Roswell Road, Marietta), South Cobb Recreation Center (875 Six Flags Drive, Austell) and Harrison Park (2653 Shallowford Road, Marietta).
Georgia's Arbor Day is a time to reflect on the importance of trees in our state. While National Arbor Day is the third Friday in April, it is too warm then to plant trees in Georgia. Every tree planted helps clean the air and water, beautify neighborhoods, provides homes for wildlife, conserves energy and prevents soil erosion.
