Arbor Day basically is a celebration for trees. It's somewhat of an overlooked day as far as holidays go. But, a group of citizens here in the lake area will be celebrating the event at Tuten park

The City of Lake Charles and Friends of Tuten Park are sponsoring the second annual Arbor Day at Tuten Park on Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Tuten Park, located at 3801 Nelson Road.

The free event will include games, entertainment, educational projects and hands-on activities for kids such as workshops on how to create bird feeders and planter boxes, tree experiments, leaf art and interactive musical demonstrations with wood instruments.

Also, the City of Lake Charles reTREE LC Project will give away 400 trees as part of the Apache Foundation Tree Grant Program.

The public is encouraged to attend this fun and educational event.
