Every tree has a story to tell. Some have been planted merely to beautify to land, others have been planted to provide refuge from the sun and on Arbor Day, more trees are planted than any other day of the year. Tomorrow, Friday, April 25 is Arbor Day and Parkland College will honor and remember friends and loved ones of local supporters by planting several trees on the south side of the campus in the Memorial Grove. Each tree planted is a part of the Living Tree Program, where each tree is adopted and maintained for life by the college. A dedication plaque will accompany the tree.
The tree planting ceremony will be held in the Donald and Alice Dodds, Jr. multi-purpose room within the campus’ Child Development Center at 10 a.m. Parkland College is located at 2400 West Bradley Ave. in Champaign.
