Los Angeles City Councilmember Mitch O'Farrell is teaming up with Million Trees LA to host a tree adoption at a community event to mark his first 100 days in office.
The event will take place at Echo Park Lake, at the corner of Echo Park and Lake Avenues, on Saturday, October 19, at 11 a.m. The Councilmember is asking people to RSVP via the event invitation on his website [LINK].
"Beautifying the City and improving our neighborhoods is something that is near and dear to my heart," said O'Farrell. "The partnership between my office and Million Trees LA is a perfect fit and I'm thrilled the organization could be part of this very special community celebration."
The adoption is open to residents of the City of Los Angeles. Official proof of residence such as a state issued Identification Card, Driver's Licence, or copy of a Department of Water and Power utility bill will be required.
"Our mission is to improve LA's urban forest, promote healthy living, and provide green jobs," said Elizabeth Skrzat with Million Trees LA. "We are excited to partner with Councilmember O'Farrell, who shares this vision for a greener and healthier Los Angeles."
Supplies are limited and will be distributed on a first come, first served basis. Limit one adopted tree per property address.
Million Trees LA collaborates with the Department of Water and Power to provide the trees.
