Arbor Day Celebration – Tree Trail Ramble

Arbor Day Tree Ramble
In 1872, an industrious newspaper editor and political leader, J. Sterling Morton, began a campaign to plant trees on Nebraska’s treeless prairie. The first Arbor Day observance was on Morton’s birthday, April 10, of that same year, and by 1894 every state and some foreign countries participated in Arbor Day celebrations. In 1941, Georgia chose the third Friday in February to observe Arbor Day. Become involved in Arbor Day this year and discover humanity’s true best friend! Join us to learn about and celebrate the trees at the Garden.
