The Anne Frank Sapling will be planted on Arbor Day 2022 on the University of Iowa Pentacrest. Talks, spoken-word performances, and live music will precede the planting. Attendees should gather on the lawn just east of the UI Old Capitol building. After the talks and performances, the crowd will move to the northeast corner of the Pentacrest for the official tree planting.

This event is free and open to the public. We encourage you to register so that we can approximate the number of attendees.
