Arbor Day Tree Planting At Big Bear High School

Big Bear City, CA, April 27, 2011, noon - Arbor Day is a national observance that encourages tree planting and care, celebrated on the last Friday in April.  The celebration continues this year at Big Bear High School. On Friday, April 29, students from Mr. Hall’s class will plant 20 trees donated by the U.S. Forest Service, in an ongoing beautification project at the High School.  The project is a concerted effort by the National Forest Association (NFA) and The Lighthouse Project to educate students on the importance of native plants and restoration.  Students also volunteer for weekend activities at the NFA’s designed sites on the San Bernardino National Forest as part of a large-scale, three-year restoration program. Students 11 to 17 years old who want to join the youth volunteer team for summer outdoor restoration events should contact the NFA Youth Program Coordinator, at (909) 382–2773.
