In honor of the 150th Arbor Day holiday, the Arbor Day Foundation compiled a list of 150 activities to help people commemorate the national holiday, observed on Friday, April 29.
The list was curated with the intent to provide a wide variety of options for people to spend time in nature and learn more about trees.
“For the past 150 years, Arbor Day is the time for people to take some time to appreciate the positive impact trees have on people and the planet,” said Dan Lambe, chief executive of the Arbor Day Foundation. “We are encouraging everyone to have fun outside in nature and among the trees as they think about how trees frame our lives.”
Arbor Day is one of the oldest environmental holidays observed in the United States and across the world. The Arbor Day Foundation, founded in 1972, is the largest member nonprofit dedicated to tree planting. In its first 50 years, the Foundation has helped to plant and distribute almost 500 million trees in more than 50 countries.
