Denton, TX – Denton Independent School District (Denton ISD) in collaboration with Keep Denton Beautiful (KDB) has announced an exciting two-day event to celebrate Children’s Arbor Day on April 30 and May 1. Aimed at enhancing students’ connection with the environment, the event will feature the distribution of free Redbud seedlings to registered pre-kindergarten and third-grade classes across the district.

Recognized as the “Redbud Capital of Texas,” Denton’s choice of the Redbud tree symbolizes the city’s dedication to natural beauty and conservation. The event seeks to instill an appreciation for trees and their critical role in our ecosystems among the young students.

Volunteers from KDB will be on hand to educate students about the historical significance of Arbor Day, which dates back to 1872 as a pioneering tree-planting holiday. This national day of observance now represents a broader commitment to environmental stewardship and conservation efforts across the United States.

The educational program will not only highlight the importance of trees in urban and rural landscapes but will also provide practical advice on how to plant and care for the newly acquired seedlings. This hands-on approach is designed to empower students with the knowledge and skills necessary to contribute positively to their local environment.

Keep Denton Beautiful, a division of Denton Parks and Recreation, is at the forefront of initiatives aimed at litter prevention, beautification, and the promotion of tree planting within the community. The organization’s mission is to involve the community in efforts to keep Denton clean and aesthetically pleasing.

For more information on how to participate in the Children’s Arbor Day celebration or to register a class for the event, interested parties are encouraged to visit the Keep Denton Beautiful | Children’s Arbor Day website.

This initiative represents a significant step towards engaging the younger generation in conservation efforts and highlights the ongoing commitment of Denton ISD and KDB to fostering a sustainable and environmentally aware community.
