Arbor Day

Tomorrow, April 25th, is Arbor Day! The first Arbor Day was 140 years ago in Nebraska, and other states soon followed. Individuals, government agencies, schools, and civic groups across the country mark the day by planting trees in their communities and helping to spread awareness of the vital role trees play in our world.

Even if planting a tree yourself isn't an option, you can observe Arbor Day with your kids with these tips from PBS Parents. The page includes a book list, a video, ideas for ways to help your kids make observations about the natural world and to stay safe while doing it.
