Arbor Day is fast
approaching, and the Clifton Park Office of Parks, Recreation and Community
Affairs will once again sponsor its annual “Plant a Tree for a Newborn”
Program. This fun and eco-friendly program offers a free
tree seedling to all Clifton Park families who have had a baby born between
Arbor Day 2012 and Arbor Day 2013.

Has your family added a new baby to your family recently? Read on to find out how you can get your free seedling.
The requirements for this program are that the
parents live in Clifton Park, the babies are born between April 27, 2012 and
April 26, 2013 and the families register their newborn with the town at the
Office of Parks, Recreation and Community Affairs located in Town Hall.
The deadline for registration is April 5, 2013 unless the child is born between
April 5 and April 26, 2013.
The week after Arbor Day 2013, this year falling
from April 29 – May 3, the newborn babies’ pictures will be displayed at Town
Hall where the parents can come and pick up a free
seedling tree to be planted on their property.
The Clifton Park Office of Parks, Recreation
and Community Affairs hopes that these trees will
grow up with the child, and add to the child’s appreciation of nature and the
conservation of wildlife.
The Clifton Park Office of Parks, Recreation and Community Affairs is open Monday-Friday from 9am to 5pm and can also be
reached for more information at 371-6667.
