Celebrate Arbor Day

Thank you for your interest in celebrating Arbor Day! While in years past this was a time for volunteer opportunities and community events for all ages, current CDC recommendations for COVID-19 make this year very different.

Even though most community celebrations and tree planting events in the spring of 2020 are being postponed or cancelled, the spirit of Arbor Day is still strong.

Below you will find some resources to help you enjoy Arbor Day 2020 — planting, nurturing, and celebrating trees in this time of social distancing.
