East Texas Baptist turns Arbor Day into service-learning experience

Each year on the official Texas State Arbor Day, East Texas Baptist University takes to the campus grounds to plant trees and contribute to the beautification of campus. While National Arbor Day occurs in late April, Texas Arbor Day occurs on the first Friday in November due to the cooler temperatures. In order to turn Arbor Day into a service-learning experience, ETBU provides a unique opportunity for students to get involved in the tree planting process each year.
