ARBOR WEEK IN LAKE OSWEGO

As part of Lake Oswego's 29th year as a Tree City USA designee, the City plans to promote education, dialogue, and voluntary stewardship through an Art Contest and more.

 

ANNUAL ARBOR DAY ART CONTEST

Each class at Forest Hills also intends to submit entries to the Arbor Day Art Contest.   

The artwork should be tree or forest-themed and celebrate Lake Oswego's status as Tree City of the Year.

Artwork can be dropped off at Parks & Rec's Palisades building or at the Lake Oswego Public Library. All entries must be received on or before April 27th, National Arbor Day.  All artwork must include the artist's name, phone number, email address, grade and school on the reverse side of the piece.

The artwork will be judged on creativity and overall design based upon the theme, with 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners selected in 3 divisions: K-2, 3-5 and 6-8.

Contest winners will be notified on or before May 7, and prizes will be awarded at the Lake Oswego Farmers’ Market on its opening day, May 19th.

Opening-day festivities at the Farmers’ Market will be held from 8:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m. and feature a variety of forestry-themed activities, including Forestry booths with a prize wheel and free tree seedling handouts.

 

NATURE WALK (APRIL 6): 

Walkers can join Lake Oswego City staff and volunteers from 10-10:45 a.m. for a stroll through Springbrook Park on the trails behind Uplands Elementary School (2055 Wembley Park Road). Kids will learn how the trunk, roots and leaves all work to keep the trees healthy. The event is aimed at kids ages 2-6, but all are welcome.

 

SEED THE WORLD (APRIL 7): 

Kids in grades K-5 can learn about the tradition of "guerilla gardening" from 1-2 p.m. at the Lake Oswego Public Library (706 Fourth St.) by making seed balls that can be planted at home or scattered in the wild.  Wildflower seeds and all other supplies will be provided.
