TUCSON - Tucson Clean & Beautiful, in cooperation with the City of Tucson and Pima County, announce the dedication of 59 commemorative trees along the Pantano River Park.
Each tree to be dedicated has been purchased by Tucson area residents, honoring friends and family. The dedication ceremony will include a reading of the names for which trees have been dedicated. At the conclusion of the ceremony attendees are invited for a brief walking tour of the newly dedicated trees.
The new Pantano River Park commemorative tree program is based upon the success of the completed El Paseo de los Arboles commemorative tree project, where 600 trees were added on the Santa Cruz River bank. Over the next several years, 570 trees will be added along the Pantano Wash. The dedicated trees will restore over two miles of natural habitat, and will grow to provide shade for users of this year-old multi-use path.
Commemorative trees are available for purchase Tucson Clean & Beautiful for $225 each, including the tree, irrigation lines and numbered marker installation, name dedication at a commemorative plaza, and guaranteed replacement. Tree purchases are partially tax-deductible.
The dedication ceremony is Friday, May 10th from 11 a.m. to noon at the Pantano River Park at Michael Perry Park, 8700 Arbor (enter on Pantano Parkway, south of Golf Links Road).
