Surrey residents are invited to celebrate National Tree Day Saturday at a planting party at Clayton Park.

Residents will plant 500 trees and shrubs, launching a month-long series of free programs and events celebrating nature in Surrey.

The event runs from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Clayton Park, 18513 70 Avenue. It’s home to Clayton Hall, tennis and lawn bowling courts, along with a playground, fields and a nature trail that leads through a grove of Douglas fir trees.
