2002 - Government Program Award - Education & Promotion - City of Claremore

Even the most casual visitors to Claremore can easily see why it has been designated a Tree City U.S.A. for the past 17 years. What is not quite as evident, however, is the teaching stewardship of the city’s horticulture department – a complement to its quality landscape program.

Special interest adult groups and, especially, the children at area schools look forward to the Horticulture Department’s regular visits to learn about trees and beautification. The rapt attention they get is very impressive. Armed with posters, videos, chainsaws, wood samples, cross-section cuts, new trees to plant and other props, department speakers have what it takes to get their messages across to people of all ages.

For its total community involvement in its educational programming, THE CITY OF CLAREMORE HORTICULTURE DEPARTMENT HAS TAKEN ROOT AS GOOD NEWS FOR OKLAHOMA’S TREES AND PLANT LIFE!
