City of Irvine's 50th Anniversary Arbor Day Celebration

Tuesday, May 18, 2021

In honor of Arbor Day and the City’s 50th anniversary, the City’s Youth Action Team, volunteers, and City staff planted 50 trees throughout Col. Bill Barber Marine Corps Memorial Park. With over 550,000 trees, Irvine has been designated as a “Tree City USA” for over 30 years, and the planting of new trees helps keep this designation. 

In addition, a memorial bench was installed at the park to honor those who have lost their lives due to COVID-19.
