Arbor Day Appreciation Award

This morning, Mayor Toby Barker joined our tree crew with Hattiesburg Parks & Recreation and students at Woodley Elementary to proclaim Friday, Feb. 8 as Arbor Day in Hattiesburg!

The event also included recognizing Woodley Elementary with the Arbor Day Appreciation Award and students participating in the planting of two new Live Oaks on the playground.

It was a fun (and chilly) morning to celebrate the planting of new trees in our city and to live out our designation as a "Tree City!"
