In observance of Arbor Day each year, the 6th graders from Mrs. Kanable’s classes at the Richland Middle School help with the planting trees in our parks.


Fun fact: The first Arbor Day (from the Latin arbor, meaning tree) was held on April 10, 1872, and an estimated 1 million trees were planted that day.
