Arbor Day will be celebrated by the Osterville Garden Club, (OGC) by planting a Weeping Purple Beech tree at the Cobb Astro Park. The Arbor day planting is an annual event held by the OGC to take the opportunity to educate the general public on the important role trees play in sustaining the natural environment. Each year a location visible to the public is chosen by OGC in Osterville or in the surrounding villages. This environmental holiday is observed by the OGC to encourage citizens and groups to plant trees and care for the already existing trees.
Arbor Day was founded by J. Sterling Morton on April 10th, 1872 in Nebraska City, Nebraska, United States where over an estimated one million trees were planted on that single day.
