National Planting Day
National Planting Day provides a stage for the important role that greening and beautification play in creating vibrant communities, while highlighting the critical nature of native plants and trees in enhancing biodiversity and rebuilding ecosystems. Beautiful public places transcend aesthetic appeal to positively impact the lives of area residents, visitors, businesses and institutions. Green spaces restore our local economies, creating stronger, more cohesive communities with real dollars-and-cents benefits. Native plantings enhance both the environmental and economic sustainability of neighborhoods and regions.
