LANSING, Mich. (WILX) - Friday is National Arbor Day a day where you have a chance to stop and smell the dogwoods, pine, or maple trees and celebrate everything trees do for the environment.

The zoo will be planting a swamp white oak tree along the Red Cedar River and will provide information about trees in Michigan.

From 9:30 a.m. until 2 p.m., volunteers at the zoo will talk about different animals that live in trees, teach how to identify different trees, and participants can take a pledge to help protect them.
