Don’t miss the opportunity to recognize Arbor Day. Individuals, families, community groups, or scout groups can sign up to help cleanup any of our 32 parks. Arbor Day will start at Paulus Park near the Barn with a tree planting ceremony by our Village Arborist and members of the Lake Zurich Tree Commission.

Volunteers will depart for their assigned parks to clean up (and once finished, will leave). We provide the bags, please bring work gloves, and dress appropriately.

To volunteer for park clean-up please sign up online or contact Bonnie Caputo at 847-438-5146 or by email

2023 Arbor Day

Lake Zurich is a Tree City USA Community

More than 3,400 communities, including Lake Zurich, have made the commitment to becoming a Tree City USA. They have achieved Tree City USA status by meeting four core standards of sound urban forestry management: maintaining a tree board or department, having a community tree ordinance, spending at least $2 per capita on urban forestry and celebrating Arbor Day.
