arbor day 

Whistler continues a tree-planting tradition started six years ago with Arbor Day Saturday, May 11. Whistler’s way of celebrating National Forest Week, which is May 5-11, Arbor Day involves community groups, service clubs, businesses and volunteers joining forces to plant trees around town. Co-ordinated by retired forester Don MacLaurin and the municipality’s parks crews, the Arbor Day plantings have helped "green-up" many areas in Whistler. Volunteers for this year’s Arbor Day are welcome. Arbor Day was begun in Nebraska in 1872 by J. Sterling Morton, who said: "Other holidays repose upon the past, Arbor Day proposes on the future."
