Arbor Day is April 24, and Urbana Park District, Wiley Elementary School and the City of Urbana want you to be a part of their virtual celebration!

“Smile and say, trees” while taking a photo of you standing next to your favorite tree in your yard or neighborhood. Then email that photo to by April 19.

The City of Urbana will put together a video featuring a collage of the photos along with up-close footage of a tree planting at Wiley Elementary School accompanied with a lesson about trees given by one of Wiley’s educators.
