On Saturday, March 12, the City of Fullerton and Fullerton Beautiful, Inc. will celebrate “Arbor Day” by planting native oaks and California pepper trees at Coyote Hills Tree Park, located at 2349 Parks Road, in Fullerton, from 9 a.m.-12 p.m. This year, Fullerton is also celebrating its 35th anniversary designation as a “Tree City USA.”
“Coyote Hills Tree Park was recently converted to a drought tolerant garden from a desolate turf area,” explained Dennis Quinlivan, Deputy Director of Maintenance Services. “The nature of the sandy soil at this location required a tremendous amount of water to keep the turf green, so this is a perfect location to eliminate the turf and reintroduce native trees and drought tolerant plants, especially as drought conditions in California continue.”
Volunteers are welcome to participate by arriving at the park at 9 a.m., and should bring round point shovels, work gloves, water, sturdy shoes, and a hat or sun screen. In the event of rain, the event will be rescheduled to Saturday, March 19.
For more information, please contact the Public Works Department at (714) 738-5345.
