Yesterday our Parks and Recreation Department planted 86 oak tree saplings at various City parks - including Chinkapin, Nuttall and Shumard Oaks.

๐ŸŒณ๐ŸŒณ๐ŸŒณ

75 of these trees were donated as part of a tree giveaway through Scenic Texas and Moon Valley Nurseries, and the remaining trees were being fostered by Keep Katy Beautiful board members.

Oak trees have played an important role throughout human history with multiple industrial, agricultural, and environmental applications, as well as providing shelter and food for a variety of birds, insects and animals.

Thank you so much to everyone who stuck out the rain to rewind back in time with us!!

The performance by Satellite Band had us rocking to the beat with sound and lighting production managed by Texas Live Sound!

Houston Party Rental helped light up the night with the disco dance floor, LED cocktail tables, the giant bright light, life-size Rubik's cube, and light-up Jenga! While the LED furniture and bar were brought in by Premier Sound and Lighting

Guests got to take home a piece of the party with a keepsake print from Pixster Photo Booth to rewind over and over and over again!

And the party didn't stop there, Joystix Classic Games & Pinballs brought in 8 different arcade games from Pinball & Pac-Man to Galaga and Buck Hunter where everyone got to enjoy the most beloved games from "back in the day"!

Everything was a blast and we loved having everyone there to enjoy the party with us!!

YOU, our community members, work with US, park staff, to create a snapshot of the variety of wildlife that can be found in local parks using the iNaturalist app. To participate, community members will use the app to take pictures of plants, insects and animals to see what wildlife is present in our city and provide the park system with more information about local pollinators, which are essential to our ecosystem.
