DAYTON, Ohio – May 2, 2011 – The CarLocate Crew helped plant nearly 30 dogwood and hazelnut trees at Pondview Park in Kettering, Ohio, on Arbor Day (April 29, 2011), as part of the Crew's ongoing efforts to give back to their community and extend an appreciation for the environment beyond Earth Day.

"Planting trees in honor of Arbor Day is one more way we can encourage environmental awareness, a key interest area for the CarLocate.com team since the site's inception," said Nicole Case, general manager of CarLocate.com. "We're pleased to have had this chance to improve our local surroundings and give back to our community."
The Crew also transplanted wildflowers from one area of Pondview Park to another to help propagate the flowers throughout the park.
This tree planting at Pondview Park was coordinated by the City of Kettering Parks Department. Pondview Park was renovated in 2010 to help people of all abilities enjoy and learn about nature. One of its unique features is a trail system that is specifically designed to be accessible for individuals using wheelchairs, walkers, canes, or strollers.
First established in 1872, Arbor Day is celebrated nationwide on the last Friday in April every year. Arbor Day is typically celebrated by planting a tree. For information on how you can get involved year round, visit the Arbor Day Foundation website: www.arborday.org or contact your local Parks Department.
