Go Green at SanTree Fest

Wednesday, January 25, 2012

It’s fun, it’s free and just six weeks away.

On Saturday, March 17, the city of Santee will host SanTree Fest, an annual event that echoes the nationwide Earth Day celebration and highlights both wellness and environmental awareness.

It started seven years ago as a way to rally the community together to plant trees and to celebrate Arbor Day and the city’s Tree City USA designation.

This year’s event will be held from to at Town Center Community Park in front of the City of Santee Aquatics Center and Cameron Family YMCA, 10123 Riverwalk Drive.

If you’re a Girl or Boy Scout leader, or a member of a club or service organization, SanTree Fest is an ideal opportunity to blend education with public service.

Volunteers will divide into groups and plant approximately 45 trees in the park’s newest new picnic area and around the YMCA. There will be a variety of booths and vendors showcasing green businesses and those that promote a healthy, nutritional lifestyle.

You can get a head start by filling out a liability waiver in advance. The waiver is on the Special Events page of the  city’s website.

For sponsorship opportunities and booth information, contact Special Events Supervisor Cherie Meek at 619-258-4100 ext 219 or by email at cmeek@ci.santee.ca.us.
