The celebration of Arbor Day is a joint program between The City of Calgary, the Calgary Board of Education, Catholic School District, and the Landscape and Nursery Trade Association.
On this day, all Grade 1 students in Calgary schools received a tree seedling to be taken home and planted on private property.

At the ceremony, speakers from The City, Calgary Board of Education, Alberta Government, Trees Canada and Trees Company Ltd., all spoke about the importance of trees and green spaces and the benefit they have now and for future generations.
