Celebrate Arbor Day

In 1872, J. Sterling Morton proposed to the Nebraska Board of Agriculture that a special day be set aside for the planting of trees. Over a million trees were planted. Today, Arbor Day is observed throughout the nation and the world.

Here are just a few suggestions for how to celebrate Arbor Day, which is April 28 this year in Pennsylvania:

• Plant a tree.
• Read a book about trees.
• Go for a walk in the woods.
• Volunteer to clean up a public park.
• Attend a class on tree and plant care.You can visit https://www.arborday.org/celebrate to learn more about Arbor Day.Source: https://www.arborday.org/celebrate/documents/proclamation.pdf
