Arbor Day at Meadow Brook


Celebrate Arbor Day at Meadow Brook by volunteering to plant trees

Rochester Hills will get a little greener when residents and volunteers gather to plant trees and celebrate the community’s outdoor engagement efforts at the annual Arbor Day Ceremony.

This year’s event will celebrate Oakland University’s and the City of Rochester Hills’ dedication to tree planting, conservation, and environmental stewardship.

Volunteers are needed to participate in the outdoor community workday as part of the Woodland Restoration Program.

Meadow Brook Hall’s 2023 Arbor Day event was planned in partnership with Oakland University, the City of Rochester Hills, ReLeaf Michigan and Sav-A-Tree.
