About this event

This event is provided by Salem Art Association

This year marks Salem’s 40th anniversary of achieving Tree City USA status as recognized by the Arbor Day Foundation – making it the longest standing of all Oregon cities that have made specific commitments to their urban forests. In honor of this recognition, join us for an enlightening talk and stroll exploring Salem’s trees with a focus on Bush’s Pasture Park. The talk will begin in Bush Barn Art Center followed by a stroll through the park to identify some of the primary species and a discussion of current and future plans for maintaining this significant urban forest. Presenters will be Friends of Trees Programs Manager Kris Hikari, Friends of Bush Garden Project Coordinator Gretchen Carnaby, and City of Salem Park Horticulturalist Tom Beatty. Come learn about Salem’s trees and the important role our urban forests fulfill in our community. This event is free and open to the public.
