Posted on Apr 19, 2022

The City of San Bernardino Parks, Recreation & Community Services Department will host a community Arbor & Earth Day Park Revitalization and Resource Fair from 9 am to 12 pm on Saturday, April 23 at Wildwood Park, located at 536 East 40th Street.

The Arbor & Earth Day Revitalization and Resource Fair is a free community gathering that will include giveaways, environmental awareness, free mulch and compost for your yard, free document shredding, and a volunteer cleanup and tree planting at Wildwood Park.

“Arbor Day and Earth Day are not just fun chances to learn about small steps we can take in our everyday lives to efficiently reduce our water and energy use,” said City Parks and Recreation Director Lydie Gutfeld. “It is also a chance to come together as a community, plant some trees, clean up the park, and make a difference.”

The family friendly and pet friendly event will feature demonstrations and information from a wide variety of participating environmental and community organizations, including the California Conservation Corp., San Bernardino Animal Services, West Coast Arborists, Serenity Plants, Uplift San Bernardino, and Owner Occupied Rehab Program.

To obtain free mulch or compost, residents are asked to provide their own containers. Due to expected high demand, free secure document shredding will be limited to five (5) standard boxes per household. Free motor oil filter recycling containers and other giveaways will be available while supplies last.
