All Californians are invited to participate in the inaugural year of the California Arbor Week Photography Contest. The contest is designed to highlight the broad diversity of tree species, settings, and landscapes throughout our state, in locations urban and rural, large and small. Winners will be featured at the State Fair and awarded cash prizes. Photographs may be entered in two categories: My Favorite California Tree or Trees Where I Live. Entries are due by March 31.
Contest information packets can be downloaded at www.arborweek.org.
California Arbor Week runs March 7-14 every year to mark famed horticulturist Luther Burbank’s birthday. Last year, legislation was passed to define California Arbor Week in statute. California ReLeaf is raising money to fund tree-planting initiatives and support local organization for 2012’s celebration.
