We love trees at Spring Grove Nursery, so Arbor Day is one of our favorite days of the year! We started our local Arbor Day Program at Grundy County grade schools 15 years ago, and we are proud to be planting trees with 2 schools this spring. We educate the kids first about the benefits of trees and then let them jump in to help plant a tree at their school. It is a rewarding experience for us & fun for the kids too!
If you aren’t already celebrating Arbor Day, we would encourage you to get out into your community & do the same. We have lots of ideas & resources available to help you set up an Arbor Day Program of your own. Just give us a call!
Here is an example of the info that we share with the kids: ARBOR DAY TREE INFO. The kids really enjoy learning about how much good the tree that they help plant will do for their school & their environment. It’s a great lesson & a lot of fun!
