Just like East Palo Alto Mayor Regina Wallace-Jones, Mayor Adrian Fine, continued the Canopy tradition by planting a valley oak at Mitchell Park in a special ceremony which preceded the Awards Ceremony. This tree will provide a host of benefits to the community for years to come. See photos from the event here.
