2021 Arbor Day Celebration
On Thursday, May 13, Peck Elementary students and the City of Arvada forestry team planted a Greenspire Linden at the school. For 35 consecutive years, Peck students and City of Arvada parks staff have planted trees in celebration of Arbor Day. The State Forest Service presented the City team with the City's 30th Tree City USA award, and the Growth award, one of only eight Colorado communities to receive that award.
