The public is invited to celebrate Arbor Day with the Hopkinsville Beautification Commission on Friday, April 7, 2017 at 10:30 a.m. at the North Drive Trailhead of the Hopkinsville Greenway System (Rail Trail).

Hopkinsville Mayor Carter Hendricks and Christian County Judge-Executive Steve Tribble will present the Arbor Day proclamation, which will be followed by an announcement from the Commission of the Tree ID program which provides tree identification markers set by the Hopkinsville Public Works Department along the Rail Trail and a trail walk. A printable map of locations will be available on the Beautification Commission website for individuals, families and students wishing to locate a particular tree or have fun identifying them all! The commission encourages everyone to enjoy the spring on the trail while learning more about our trees.
