Arbor Day Celebration at Waite Park

Waite Park Elementary School and Park has been identified by the Minneapolis Parks and Recreation Board as one of the sites for this year's Arbor Day celebration! 

On May 20, students from Waite Park Elementary School will be planting of 70-80 trees donated by Home Depot and the Arbor Day Foundation. These trees will be planted around the park and school as well as on the boulevards where many trees were recently removed due to dutch elm disease. Included in the program will be the planting of a disease-resistant elm tree called the "Liberty Tree" that is part of a nationwide initiative to replant elms lost to disease. This event will also include educational programs with "Elmer the Elm Tree," a visit by the MPRB Showmobile and bucket rides for children. All are welcome to attend.

A site plan for the planting can be found here:
