Wanted: Your Arbor Day Tree Story

We are writing a community-generated story and we are looking for your help. If your family has ever received a free Arbor Day sapling from the Scott Arboretum, whether through Swarthmore-Rutledge School or by attending Scott Arboretum’s Arbor Day festivities, we would like to hear your stories and see some photos. Think back through the years! 

Please contact Lauren McKinney at if you would like to participate. Please send your emails by Monday, April 8.
