The City of Sparks is celebrating Arbor Day on Friday, April 27, at 9:05 a.m. with a tree planting at Sepulveda Elementary School. The school’s 4th grade students will take part in the planting ceremony which honors the nation’s 146th anniversary of this special tree-planting day.

Arbor Day was first held in Nebraska on April 10, 1872 in celebration of the planting of one million trees in the state. The annual observance was created to promote better communities worldwide by supporting efforts to protect trees and woodlands. Arbor Day serves to encourage citizens to plant trees for the well-being of this and future generations.
Miguel Sepulveda Elementary School is located at 5075 Ion Drive in Sparks. The tree planting will be positioned on the southwest edge of the school parking lot.
