Arbor Day observation set at Indian Trail

Canal Winchester's city and the school district will come together at 2:30 p.m. Friday, April 26, to celebrate Arbor Day at Indian Trail Elementary School, where the second-grade class will learn the importance of shade trees.

City efforts to support the environment have qualified Canal Winchester as a Tree City Community for 20 consecutive years.

The nonprofit Arbor Day Foundation provides this recognition to communities that meet specific environmental standards.

In case of rain, the event will be moved to the school's cafetorium. Indian Trail is located at 6767 Gender Road in Canal Winchester.

The Street Tree Advisory Board is a five-member panel of Canal Winchester residents who work to preserve, protect and enhance trees and plants throughout the community. The city has partnered for Arbor Day with the school district through STAB since the early 1990s.
