Arbor Day Kits

This year, Vermont Arbor Day is on Friday, May 6, 2022!

To help libraries celebrate this holiday with their communities, VTLIB is happy to partner again this year with VT Urban & Community Forestry Program, and the VT Department of Forests, Parks, & Recreation. Arbor Day is a day set aside to celebrate trees and all of their benefits. In Vermont, we celebrate on the first Friday in May. This year, it is May 6, 2022. To celebrate Vermont Arbor Day and to get Vermonters outside, the Vermont Urban & Community Forestry Program has provided sixty-five kits for libraries with items to get families outside and learn more about trees. Below you find the PDF copies of the contents of the kit (in case you need more copies, or are not one of the libraries to receive a kit), online opportunities, and suggestions on how to make the best use for your community and patrons.


A webinar about Arbor Day and the Arbor Day Kits was held on March 14, 2022. The recording is available here.
