Representatives from the Wyoming state forestry office and Rocky Mountain Power will join Casper city leaders and more than 200 students to kick off week-long Arbor Day celebrations on Monday.

The event starts at 1 p.m. at the North Casper Soccer Complex concessions area off K Street, according to a press release. Afterward, students from Pineview and Park elementary schools will plant trees at the complex. At least 600 students from North Casper, Southridge, Woods and Paradise Valley elementary schools will participate in the week's events.

The project is part of a city of Casper goal to increase canopy cover at the park and throughout the city, and the soccer complex will have 224 new trees after the week of plantings. Home Depot is also participating in the celebration.

Civil Dialogue

We provide this community forum for readers to exchange ideas and opinions on the news of the day. Passionate views, pointed criticism and critical thinking are welcome. Name-calling, crude language and personal abuse are not welcome. Moderators will monitor comments with an eye toward maintaining a high level of civility in this forum. Our comment policy explains the rules of the road for registered commenters.

If your comment was not approved, perhaps...

  1. You called someone an idiot, a racist, a dope, a moron, etc. Please, no name-calling or profanity (or veiled profanity -- #$%^&*).

  2. You rambled, failed to stay on topic or exhibited troll-like behavior intended to hijack the discussion at hand.

  3. YOU SHOUTED YOUR COMMENT IN ALL CAPS. This is hard to read and annoys readers.

  4. You have issues with a business. Have a bad meal? Feel you were overcharged at the store? New car is a lemon? Contact the business directly with your customer service concerns.

  5. You believe the newspaper's coverage is unfair. This is a forum for community discussion, and we'd rather address your concerns directly. It would be better to write the editors at, or call Editor Mandy Burton at 307-266-0545.

  6. You included an e-mail address or phone number, pretended to be someone you aren't, or offered a comment that makes no sense.

  7. You accused someone of a crime, or assigned guilt or punishment to someone suspected of a crime.

  8. Your comment is in really poor taste.
