Dedication Tree Planting

The 2018 Dedication Tree Ceremony will take place in Lagoon Park, San Rafael on April 27, 2018. Marin County Parks hosts the Dedication Tree planting annually on Arbor Day, the last Friday in April. The Marin County Poet Laureate commences the festivities with the reading of a poem. Donors can help plant the tree. A marker commemorates the event by identifying the tree type and ceremony date.
