South Bend Venues Parks & Arts celebrating Arbor Day today

SOUTH BEND, Ind. -- With National Arbor Day just around the corner, the South Bend Venues Parks & Arts are putting together a special celebration today at Pinhook Park at 9 a.m. rain or shine! 

There will be ten organizations informing the community about the importance of environmental topics.

And, a free native Indiana tree gives away to the first 50 arrivals! 

The South Bend Venues Parks & Arts will also be announcing the new educational trail about native Indiana trees. 

They have installed a QR code aspect at certain locations in front of native trees describing what tree it is and the importance of each species. 

The goal is to have a total of 100 native trees planted in the park but they do need help from the public to do so. 

If you would like to help by donating or have a tree plaque with your family's name on it, the information can be found at
