As part of the Arbor Day celebration, Mayor Edd Akers will declare October 20, 2020, as Arbor Day in Branson, a memorial tree will be dedicated to a local resident and the winner of a special social media contest will be announced. All area residents, community members, businesses, and furry friends are invited to participate in the Arbor Day celebrations.
Social media contest:
- To enter, take a picture with your favorite tree at a Branson park, post it to Facebook, and tag Branson Parks & Recreation (@Branson.RecPlex).
- Make sure to use the #BransonParksTrees hashtag.
- The winner of the contest will be announced after the memorial tree dedication and will receive a one-year membership to the Dog Park as well as some tree “swag.”
As a designated Tree City USA for 25 years, the City of Branson places great value on trees in Branson Parks. Please visit Branson’s Parks & Recreation Department website for more information on its “TreeKeepers” and “Memorial Tree Program.”
