Woodland Elementary School, under the leadership of Principal Kim Gordon, hosted the city of Joliet’s official Arbor Day celebration on Earth Day. A small group of students, following COVID precautions, participated in a tree planting ceremony with city and District 86 officials. ComEd donated the Arbor Day tree and saplings for the students to take home to plant.
The National Arbor Day Foundation recently recognized the City of Joliet for achieving the designation of “Tree City USA” for the 30th consecutive year. 2021 is the 7th year of a 10-year growing contract that provides funds to plant 1,000 trees each year in Joliet’s public areas.
