April 26th is Arbor Day!

Arbor Day is dedicated to celebrating and promoting the importance of trees and forests. It encourages individuals and communities to plant and care for trees, thereby fostering environmental stewardship and awareness of the benefits of trees to our town, state, and planet. This year it’s celebrated on Saturday, April 26th. There are many ways to observe the day in our area. Two that are close by:
