The City of Casper has announced that the Arbor Day tree planting ceremony planned for Wednesday, has been cancelled.

The weather will simply make it too difficult for the public to attend.

Students from University Park Elementary and UPS were to have joined Keep Casper Beautiful and the City of Casper Parks Division for an Arbor Day celebration and planting event.  Students were going to plant trees in Eastdale Park.

Keep Casper Beautiful was awarded a $5,000 grant from the UPS Foundation for the planting.  The UPS Foundation grants are part of UPS’s Global Forestry Initiative designed to plant, protect, and preserve trees in urban and rural areas in the United States and around the world.  The grant was available to Keep America Beautiful community-based affiliates.

It will be rescheduled, though a date has not yet been chosen.
