In honor of Arbor Day, celebrated in Nevada at the end of April, the Boulder City Public Works Department planted a Raywood ash near Whalen Field on Avenue B. It was assisted by Rhonda Gatlin’s second-grade class from Mitchell Elementary and Sara Carroll’s third-grade class from King Elementary. Roger Hall, Park & Recreation director, began the ceremony and David Duncan, in yellow vest, an irrigation technician for the city, gave an informative presentation. The students discussed topics such as why trees are important. The tree was planted early to give it a better chance of survival before temperatures soar.
