Celebrating Earth Day & Arbor Day


Plant a Tree, Plant a Forest, Beautify Your Environment, Protect the Earth.

A global, annual event celebrated on April 22, the goal of Earth Day is to demonstrate support for environmental protection by way of worldwide hosted events.  Earth Day was first celebrated in 1970, and is now coordinated globally by the Earth Day Network, celebrated in more than 192 countries each year.  Educational programs provide those in and out of schools to learn more about ways in which individuals can take actions in their own hands to preserve and care for their earth and environmental surroundings.  The most basic steps being the practices of energy conservation, recycling, planting trees and gardens, and practicing litter prevention.

Arbor Day is an American-originated holiday held on different days in the month of April or May, in which individuals, groups and organizations are encouraged to plant and care for trees. The first Arbor Day was held April 10th, 1872, where one million trees were planted on that spring day.  Originating in Nebraska City, Nebraska, with great involvement of The American Forestry Association; now many other countries honor a National Tree Planting Day. 

Plant a Tree. Plant a Forest. Protect the Earth.
