Transform

Hanami is the Japanese custom of flower viewing. The transient splendor of trees in bloom inspires people to come together for festivals, picnics, and strolls beneath a canopy of petals.

Vision for the Hanami Line

In Japan and around the world, cherry blossom festivals represent the beautiful and transient nature of life. Imagine pale petals from cherry trees being carried by spring breezes. Imagine couples strolling and families picnicking beneath a billowy canopy of pink and white blossoms. Imagine a place of such intense beauty that admirers from around the world travel to Sacramento to experience it. That is our vision for Sakuramento and the Hanami Line.

How-To See all

Dedicate a Tree

Planting a tree is one way to establish a living memorial that will bring peace, joy and security for generations. Likewise, the planting of a tree can be a gratifying act, which honors the memory of a friend or relative, or recognizes a special person or occasion.

Integrating Rural and Urban Planning: Working Together to Support California’s Diverse Communities

West Sacramento Community Center, West Sacramento

Friday, October 20 8:30A - 10:30A

The rural areas of California have never been more important to the overall economic and social health of the state of California. As the state struggles with the issues of drought, groundwater management, climate change, forest health and fire prevention, and economic development, the diverse rural regions of California provide many opportunities for statewide solutions. State and regional planning rarely consider rural issues to the degree urban communities are studied and planned. In order for California to successfully address these challenges and benefit all residents, policymakers and planners need to understand the interconnections between rural and urban communities and engage with and invest in rural communities to develop strategies and programs that meet their needs. This session will explore tools and opportunities that could strengthen the health and prosperity of rural California and increase statewide sustainability.
