Arbor Day Fun!

 New York celebrates Arbor Day on the last Friday of April.

The Arbor Day Foundation promotes the planting, nurturing, and the celebrating of trees.

Ways to celebrate and educate your little ones are visiting our local Botanical Gardens, Arboretums, and Nature Preserves. Or doing some fun crafts and educating our kids about the importance of trees.
