Bicentenary of the Birth of the Báb

Tree Dedication

October 20, 2019 - The Baha’is of Idaho Falls dedicated a memorial tree to commemorate the 200th anniversary of the birth of The Báb, the Herald of the Baha’i Faith. He was born in 1819 in Shiraz, Persia. At the age of twenty-five He proclaimed that He was the promised One of all religions and His mission was to prepare humanity for the coming of One greater than Himself (Bahá'u'lláh). The tree a Forest Knight Green Oak of the Burr Oak family, was planted in Community Park. The Baha’i community is grateful for the assistance of the Idaho Falls Parks and Recreation Department in completing the project.  This stout tree is expected to have a long life with many activities held under and surrounding it to celebrating His birthday. The Báb inaugurated a new era in history for mankind where everyone lives together in love, fellowship, and harmony that will be remembered for centuries to come.
