To celebrate Arbor Day this Friday, employees and students from Sheridan College will be planting between 20 and 30 trees on the front lawn of the campus between 8 and 2. The celebration is free and the public is encouraged to attend and help plant the trees. A media release from the College states that people should bring gloves, shovels and necessary attire.
There will be a State Forestry presentation at 11 o'clock, followed by refreshments and entertainment. In 2013, Sheridan College was named a Tree Campus USA by the Arbor Day Foundation for their commitment to tree management. The college achieved the Tree Campus USA title by meeting the program's five standards, which include maintaining a tree advisory committee, developing a campus tree-care plan, dedicating annual expenditures for its campus tree program, observing Arbor Day and organizing a student service-learning project.
