Arbor Day Success
May 16, 2023
The Arbor Day Foundation recently recognized the City of Aventura as a recipient of the 2022 Tree City USA Award! The ceremony was held last month at the Aventura Arts & Cultural Center. Aventura City Of Excellence School students showcased their dedication with art as well as dance performances.
The City also recognized local businesses and residential communities by presenting them with 2023 Aventura GO Green Recognition Awards for their efforts to reduce energy consumption and encourage sustainability. The City’s GO Green campaign encourages all City departments and the community to practice environmental sustainability by making responsible decisions that reduce negative impacts on the environment, save energy and lower operational costs.
Started in 1976, Tree City USA is one of The Arbor Day Foundation’s oldest programs. The founders had a vision for a greener, healthier America and hoped this initiative would inspire change on a nationwide level. The first Tree City USA cohort comprised of 42 communities in 16 states. Today, the program includes more than 3,600 communities from all 50 states, Washington D.C., and Puerto Rico.
Thank you to the Mayor and Commission, the Community Services Advisory Board and all of the participants that made the Arbor Day celebration a success.
