Arbor Day 2013: We celebrated Arbor Day with a tree planting at Lowell High School’s Freshman Academy Compass Program. Students in our afterschool program, run in partnership with Mass Audubon’s Drumlin Farm Wildlife Sanctuary, replaced a damaged tree with a red maple, read a proclamation, and ate a “tree” cake! City officials, including the deputy tree warden attended, along with parents and teachers. Lowell is once again a Tree City USA!
Rafting season runs weekends at 9:00am & 1:00pm, from April 6 through May 2013! Lock Tenders needed. Watch this video to see what Concord River Whitewater Rafting is like.
