National Arbor Day is April 29!
Arbor Day is a chance for us to celebrate nature through the planting and care of trees. The holiday is observed nationally on the last Friday in April, however many states observe this special tree-planting day at different times throughout the year, depending on their growing season.
Science Care works with the Arbor Day Foundation through our Memory In Nature™ Program. Through the Science Care Memory in Nature ™ program, a tree is planted in honor of every donor. The donor’s family will receive a certificate commemorating the tree planting upon the one-year anniversary of donation.
In 2016, Science Care is working with the Arbor Day Foundation to support replanting in the Etoniah Creek State Forest in North Central Florida. Reforestation of degraded sandhill sites on the Etoniah Creek State Forest is critical and has been an ongoing project since the late 1990’s when the State of Florida acquired this property as a state forest.

We invite you to celebrate nature with the Arbor Day Foundation® on April 29 (or any other day) and help this wonderful organization in support of their cause. Here are some ideas from the Arbor Day Foundation on ways that you can celebrate:
