Students plant trees for Arbor Day

Local News

SYRACUSE, N.Y. (WSYR-TV) — Taking students outside the classroom. Kids in the Syracuse City School District celebrated Arbor Day, planting trees in the city. 

Arbor Day is typically held in the spring, but the city’s arborist says fall is the best time to plant trees and it’s easier to get kids involved and excited about learning something new. 

If you’re interested in helping, the city is hosting a community tree planting on October 26th at Kirk Park. Volunteers are welcome to attend.
