History of Arbor Day
Even if one did not know it for a fact, one could guess that Arbor Day is one of those new celebrations. Oh, it's not as new as Earth Day (to which it is somewhat similar), but I mean it has nothing like the lineage of Christmas or Easter, say. Newfangled or not, if you want an introduction to the history of Arbor Day, I provide one here.
New England Autumn Leaves Headquarters
Need some ideas for incorporating autumn leaves into your landscape? Why not seek inspiration from the classic source, New England? Plan a trip to New England in September or October with the help of About's Guide to New England for Visitors, Kim Knox Beckius. If you can't make it to New England, Kim also offers opportunities for "leaf peeping" online.
National Arbor Day Foundation
The National Arbor Day Foundation mentions all sorts of ways you can get involved on this page. For example, you can learn about volunteer tree planting events. Another topic is tree management on college campuses. They even suggest "ideas for making the most of Arbor Day" in your community.
