Ron Kovatis looks at seedlings that were given out to the public during the 2018 Arbor Day celebration.

The public is invited to commemorate the important role trees play in our world during Sea Isle City’s 2019 Arbor Day Celebration, which begins at 12 noon on Friday, April 26, at the Sea Isle City Community Lodge, 300 JFK Boulevard. 

Co-hosted by the Sea Isle City Environmental Commission, the Sea Isle City Garden Club and the Sea Isle City Historical Society, this year’s Arbor Day Celebration will shine a spotlight on the dozens of new Trident Maple trees the city is planting along JFK Boulevard this spring. 

Those attending the celebration will receive free tree seedlings and other giveaways. Additionally, a local historian will explain the origins of Arbor Day, poetry will be read, and complimentary refreshments will be served. 

Also during the Arbor Day Celebration, representatives from the Environmental Commission will distribute ballots for their free Tree Raffle, which is open to Sea Isle City residents and property owners only. 

The winners of the tree raffle will be chosen during a random drawing at the Environmental Commission’s new “Green Fair” at Excursion Park on Saturday, June 8, between noon and 2 p.m.
