Abraham Lincoln Elementary School, Rancho Cordova

Saturday, March 24 8:45A - 12:00P

The City of Rancho Cordova has prioritized increasing its tree canopy because trees provide wide-ranging benefits that directly and positively impact its residents.

This March, we will continue to beautify the neighborhood and we hope that you will join us as we bring new shade trees to Abraham Lincoln Elementary and individual homes throughout the community.

Please arrive at 8:45 AM to check in so we can get started right away at 9 AM.
