The Book of Trees: Arbor & Earth Day Activity

Posted by Krystal Schoenbauer on

On April 22, Earth Day will once again reinforce the knowledge that we need to do a more bang-up job of taking care of our planet. Then, on the 27th, we will hopefully see the planting of countless new trees from coast to coast in celebration of Arbor Day. Because we can never have enough trees!

As you and your kids take part in Earth Day and Arbor Day festivities in your community, here’s a hands-on activity that will get your little ones up close and personal with the trees in their own backyard and throughout their neighborhood.

The list below will tell you everything you need to complete you book of trees. To find more instructions, click here.
