For Educators

Arbor Week is a great way to get your students outside and learning about urban forestry! Arbor Day has been celebrated since 1872 and California is one of the only states to celebrate with an entire week. California Arbor Week provides an opportunity to educate Californians of all ages about the value of trees.

This year’s Arbor Week theme is: Trees Are Superheroes!


Even though the 2016 Poster & Video contests are over (check out the winners here!), you can use our classroom activities and grade-school contests in your classroom to celebrate trees and get students engaged about the important roles trees play in protecting our communities.
