Our students planted trees at the Arbor Day Event held by the City of Edmonton. Special thanks to the Edmonton Mayor Don Iverson and the EPS Crime Prevention team for helping our students.
Arbor Day is an annual observance that celebrates the role of trees in our lives and promotes tree plant- ing and care. As a formal holiday, it was rst observed in 1872, in Nebraska, but tree planting festivals are as old as civili- zation. e tree has appeared throughout history and literature as the symbol of life.
