OROVILLE, Calif. - Oroville's 2nd annual Arbor Day celebration was held on Saturday.
The free event was put on by the Oroville Botanic Garden, the Native Sons of the Golden West and the City of Oroville.
The event was produced in order to promote more environmentally friendly ways of living and doing business.
Oroville High School's Environmental Club members were at the event to share their voices and concerns with others in their community.
Billy Xiong of the Environmental Club said, "Our booth consists of creating butterflies and caterpillars for kids that come and go."
He said they were happy to entertain the parents and kids as they came by, and to explain the purposes of Arbor Day.
Representatives for the Oroville Botanic Garden and Education Center say they have a plan in the works to someday open a world class botanic garden to educate and empower the people of Butte County.
