The city of Santa Clarita is going green this Saturday in celebration of Arbor Day at a ceremony starting 10 a.m. in Central Park, 27150 Bouquet Canyon Road in Saugus.

City officials will be giving away 1,000 trees, 1,000 bags of mulch and 150,000 free lady bugs to members of the public who attend.

Arbor Day is a nationally celebrated day of observance that encourages tree planting and care. The dates of Arbor Day, however, vary from state to state.

"The goal of Arbor Day is to show Santa Clarita residents how important trees are to our community and to give them the knowledge they need to care for their environment," said Robert Sartain, arborist and urban forestry supervisor for the city. "We need everyone's help to maintain the city's great reputation as a clean and beautiful place to live."

The National Arbor Day Foundation will be awarding the city with the Tree City USA award and the Growth Award. State Forrester Abigail Srader will present Mayor Bob Kellar with the awards during the opening ceremonies.

The event, which will also include vendors, food, live entertainment, a raffle and various kids activities, runs through 2 p.m.
