Arbor Day

Celebrate Vermont Arbor Day on Friday, May 6th, 2022!

Arbor Day is a day set aside to celebrate trees and all of their benefits. It has been over 130 years since J. Sterling Morton founded Arbor Day. His simple idea of establishing a special day for planting trees is now more important than ever. In Vermont, we celebrate Arbor Day on the First Friday in May, a day when we can roll up our sleeves and plant trees!

Arbor Day Celebration Kits

This year we partnered with the Vermont Department of Libraries to create and distribute 65 Arbor Day Celebration Kits, that included scavenger hunts, craft ideas, book marks, and sugar maple seed grow packets. See the 2022 recipients here.
