MUNSTER | The town of Munster and the Munster branch of the Lake County Public Library recognized Arbor Day recently by giving away 100 seedlings.
The seedlings came with planting instructions. The program aims to promote stewardship of the environment as well as educate residents about the importance of trees, caring for trees and planting the right tree in the right place.
The town also planted a tree in Community Park.
Munster has also been named a Tree City USA by the National Arbor Day Foundation. It's the 17th year Munster has received this national recognition.
