Arbor day leaves

by N.H. Egleston

Publication Information: 28 p.

Annotation: Arbor Day originated in Nebraska in 1872; by 1907, it was observed in every State in the Union, principally through school programs that provided explicit training in conservation principles and practice for several generations of young Americans. This book offers a brief history of Arbor Day, a selection of appropriate readings that links conservationist pedagogy with literary tradition, an overview of Arbor Day observances, and a sample Arbor Day program typical of those performed in schools throughout the country. Patriotism, piety, aesthetic sentiment, and economic prudence came together in these observances, which demonstrate how certain essential elements of conservationism were integrated into the upbringing of vast numbers of turn-of-the-century schoolchildren.
