City Departments and partners will gather at the Goshen Courthouse Lawn Friday, April 29 from 4:30 to 7:30 p.m. for an evening of fun and learning.

At the City’s Arbor Day celebration on April 29th, at the County Courthouse in downtown Goshen, there will be tree seedlings to give away: 100 Sweet Gum, 100 Pecan, and 100 Silky Dogwood. The Goshen High School Youth Caucus will also be raffling off 18 older trees. This will be a fundraiser for Trees For Goshen, a local non-profit organization that helps Goshen residents plant trees on their properties. Raffle tickets can be purchased at the Arbor Day event, and ahead of Arbor Day by inquiring at environmental@goshencity.com.

There are 11 different species of trees in the raffle, and participants can choose which kind of tree they are purchasing a ticket for. Three of these species will be smaller than 4 feet tall this spring, and tickets will be sold for $10 per tree; the remaining species will be 4-6 feet tall, and tickets will be sold for $15 per tree.
