Arbor Day – April 29, 2016
Today, Arbor Day continues to thrive in catalyzing not only an appreciation for trees, but also an environmental awareness. Organizations such as the National Arbor Day Foundation provide informational resources surrounding the history of trees, awareness programs and more. We all understand that environmental education is of great importance and celebrating Arbor Day is one more way to help grow an environmentally literate society that demonstrates environmental stewardship. Energy conservation, oxygen supply, and clean air and water are just a few of the many positive benefits trees have on the environment.
