In 1888 the Wyoming Territorial Legislature declared the last Monday in April as Wyoming's official Arbor Day.

This year we celebrate Wyoming's 130th Arbor Day!

The Poster Contest is sponsored by the Wyoming State Forestry Division and Wyoming Project Learning Tree.

Arbor Day PLT Activities

Many Project Learning Tree activities relate to Arbor Day. Each year National Project Learning Tree provides two activities from the PLT K-8 guide to use for helping students understand the value of trees in our community and why we should celebrate them! Many PLT activities can help your students think about trees and how we benefit from them in our communities. To acquire the curriculum guides containing these great activities you'll need to attend one of our fun-filled, hands-on workshops or complete an online course.

Please contact Jessica Halverson if you're interested in holding a workshop in your area. or 307-283-2954
