Projects & Annual Events
Green Paradise Party
The Green Paradise Party is our largest fundraiser, held at the end of the summer. The gala features food, music, a silent auction with all of the proceeds going toward the preservation of the city's urban forest.
Arbor Day Celebration
Day is a nationally celebrated observance that encourages tree planting
and care. Baton Rouge Green hosts the city's Arbor Day Celebration on
the third Friday in January to thank its members and volunteers for their continued support of the organization.
Fall Tree for All
Rouge Green holds a tree sale each year, known as the Fall
Tree-For-All. This event, held in October, kicks
off the planting season by offering the public a wide selection of
shade, flowering and fruit trees. Baton Rouge Green
sells plants grown within 100 miles of Baton Rouge and often
features many hard-to-find natives such as paw paw, persimmon, mayhaw,
and bigleaf magnolia.
A collaborative project between Baton Rouge Green, Slow Food Baton Rouge, and LAMAR Advertising. We have established Open-Source Citrus trees Downtown and in Old South Baton Rouge. Please visit the CITY CITRUS website to learn more about this exciting movement.
Trees 101 are educational seminars scheduled throughout the year with neighborhood and civic associations. The events are a part of Plant Smart, a movement to educate local residents about the importance of urban forestry and the proper maintenance techniques to grow healthy trees and keep the community beautiful.
