Gather Your Group and Help Plant Trees to Celebrate Arbor Day!

The City of Chino Hills and the California Conservation Corps are teaming up with residents for the City’s first celebration in honor of Arbor Day. Residents are encouraged to get a group together and come out to help plant trees at Hollow Run Nature Park on Saturday, April 27 from 8:00 am to noon. Girl Scouts, Boy Scouts, service clubs, neighbors, friends, schools, families and others are encouraged to call (909) 364-2700 or send an email to HealthyHills@chinohills.org to register for the event. The tree planting project is part of the City’s Healthy Hills initiative that seeks to engage the community and promote healthy activities. The City will provide necessary equipment for volunteers. Refreshments will be available.

Participants may park on the east side of Peyton Drive between Bayberry Drive and Autumn Avenue, or on Autumn Avenue in the cul-de-sac, to access Hollow Run Nature Park, 15959 Peyton Drive. The City’s Public Works Department staff and City contractors West Coast Arborist and Excel Landscape will be on site providing assistance and education. Funding for the project is through an Environmental Enhancement and Mitigation grant to improve the urban forest. City staff will have approximately 150 trees ready to plant at the event including Coast Live Oak, California Sycamore, and White Alder species. This project will help the City of Chino Hills meet requirements to earn the “Tree City USA” designation. For additional information, please call (909) 364-2733.
