Join Richmond Parks & Recreation for our first ever "Tree Week" as a part of our efforts to have Richmond become an Arbor Day Foundation certified "Tree City USA"! Due to COVID-19, this is a virtual event.

All week long, we'll be posting videos about the benefits of urban forests, fun facts about trees, and lots of info about how to plant and care for trees. We also have a fun at-home scavenger hunt you can do!

Finally, all week you and your family can send in your tree related questions to greenhouserichmondin@gmail.com. We'll compile the questions and share answers on Saturday, 10/24.

Visit throughout the week for content updates, or stay tuned to our Facebook page for daily updates!

Scavenger Hunt

Get familiar with the trees in your parks and with basic tree identification skills with our tree scavenger hunt! Try to find an example for each characteristic in the scavenger hunt. You may not find everything in one park, and that is just fine! The focus of this is to open our eyes to all the different trees we have here in Richmond. If you want to identify more trees, try the What Tree is That? guide through the Arbor Day Foundation.

Turn in this scavenger hunt with your name, email, and phone number by 10/27/2020 to the Parks Office or by emailing it to greenhouserichmondin@gmail.com to be entered to win a special Richmond Parks Department prize!
