Arbor Day

     The City of Hackensack will celebrate Arbor Day on Saturday, May 13th at 12:30 P.M. with a tree-planting along the Hackensack River in Johnson Park (behind the Field House).  A weeping willow tree will be planted in honor of Hackensack RiverKeeper Bill Sheehan who is participating in the City-wide Clean-Up event that same day.  While watershed enthusiasts take to their canoes and clean the watershed that morning, landlubbers will be adopting parks, railroad tracks and parking lots for clean-up throughout the City.  A picnic lunch follows along the Johnson Park/Hackensack riverbanks follows the ceremony.
