KINGMAN - The Cerbat Garden Club has been working in fifth-grade classrooms throughout the community these past few weeks sharing information about Arbor Day, which is celebrated nationwide as well as around the world.

Students and Cerbat volunteers discussed the importance of trees to our environment and in our cities and towns. Fifth-grade students have been asked to create and submit an Arbor Day poster for review and selection for school and state competition.

The students will have opportunities to win cash prizes and a tree for their school planted by Cerbat Garden Club for participating in this program. Additionally, each student who submits a poster will receive a sapling tree from the Cerbat Garden Club.

A community celebration of Arbor Day organized by the Cerbat Garden Club, the Arizona Cooperative Extension Center and Mayor John Salem will be held in March.
