An Arbor Day program and tree-planting ceremony were held on May 7 at the Kaskaskia College Vandalia Campus.
Seven trees or bushes were planted, and participants heard a program by Kent Boyles, district wildlife biologist for the Illinois Department of Natural Resources.
Boyles noted that Arbor Day has been observed since 1872, and is now celebrated on the last Friday in April.
He advised participants on what to plant.
