Arbor Day Celebration - Fri, Jan 19, 2024


Florida Arbor Day has been observed on the 3rd Friday in January since 1886.  The Clearwater Garden Club was formed in 1950 and has been a member of the Florida Federation of Garden Clubs (FFGC) for 73 years.  In 2024 The Florida Federation of Garden Clubs celebrates its 100th Anniversary.

Florida continues to lose native trees, and this, in turn, has contributed to steep declines in native insect and bird populations and threatens our natural heritage;  Trees provide countless benefits by improving air quality, providing shade, enhancing our parks and public spaces, reducing stormwater runoff, combating climate change, and providing habitat for wildlife while beautifying our community.


On January 19th members and guests of The Clearwater Garden Club celebrated both Florida Arbor Day and FFGC’s 100th birthday by planting a DD Blanchard Grandiflora Magnolia at 405 Seminole Street.
