The city of Canal Winchester and Canal Winchester Local Schools will come together Friday, April 27th at 2:45 p.m. to celebrate Arbor Day at Winchester Trail Elementary, 6865 Gender Rd. Mrs. Deanna Somers’ 4th grade class will plant an Eastern Redbud at the school, and then students will learn about forest insects and the history of Arbor Day.
Canal Winchester Mayor Michael Ebert will present an Arbor Day Proclamation following the commemorative tree planting. The celebration will last approximately one hour. As long as there are no severe weather warnings, Arbor Day activities will proceed rain or shine.
“We want to help teach everyone about the importance of tree canopy coverage and its effect on slowing and filtering storm water movement in urban areas,” said Dick Miller, Canal Winchester’s Urban Forester.
The city coordinates Arbor Day events through the Street Tree Advisory Board, a five member panel of Canal Winchester residents who have worked to preserve, protect and enhance trees and plants throughout the community since the early 1990s.
