Tree planting on Arbor Day

 

During the Arbor Day Tree planting, the general characteristics of this tree species were presented, suggesting the ‘right tree, right site’ concept. For the remainder of the afternoon, the children were separated into four groups and alternated between 15-minute activities offered by Parks and Recreation, Williams Brothers’ Tree and Lawn Service, and the Department of Forestry. The kids could also express their creativity by coloring and doing activities in the “Trees Are Good” coloring and activity books.
