Winona State University will celebrate Arbor Day and the dedication of the Richard and Moonyeen Holle Arboretum from 9:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Friday, April 25, in front of Phelps Hall on the WSU campus.

The celebration will kick off with a ceremonial tree planting with second-grade students from Jefferson Elementary, followed by a puppet show, “Conserving the Pollinators,” at 10 a.m. in Kryzsko Commons. Members of WSU’s Environmental Club will then lead the elementary students in planting seedlings.

At 12:30 p.m. the Winona Fire Department will assist with a controlled burn in the prairie garden behind the Science Laboratory Center, followed by campus tree tours and tours of the native prairie garden. All events are free and open to the public.
