National Tree Day Planting Party
On Saturday September 29th stop by Sullivan Park (62A Ave) for this free community event with face painting, activities, refreshments, and tree planting from 10:00am to 2:00pm.

Spirit Tree Festival
While I don’t believe it’s an official National Tree Day event, it is a Culture Days and Burnaby120 event, which is focused around a very special tree. The Spirit Tree (a very unique cedar) will be dedicated on Friday September 28th and free interactive workshops will follow on Saturday (9:00am to 4:00pm) and Sunday (10:00am to 3:00pm) at the Burnaby Arts Council (6584 Deer Lake Ave).
