Annually the City of Clyde Hill and the Bellevue School District hold their Arbor Day Celebration with the purpose of raising awareness among the children of Clyde Hill Elementary School about the value of trees and how to become good stewards of this natural resource. Before completing the poems and posters, students are involved in a classroom discussion about how to care for and appreciate trees. At the event a tree is planted and each student receives a a plant to take home.
