ARBOR DAY 2020 IS FRIDAY APRIL 24!
We started planting trees for Arbor Day with local schools 17 years ago when our daughter was a youngster at MVK Grade School. She’s graduating from grad school this spring! Every year since then we have planted at MVK Grade School and several other area schools. We enjoy teaching the kids about the benefits of trees and letting them dig in to plant a tree at their school. This year will be different as the local schools are all closed, and we can’t get out there with the kids. We are really going to miss that!
To celebrate in a different way, we are partnering with my brother & sister-in-law’s company iTrees.com to plant trees for deserving health care professionals in our community. We have been accepting nominations from the community these past few weeks and the lucky winners will be announced on Arbor Day. Here is a link to more about the program: Planting Peace, Growing Hope
To learn more about the benefits of trees, check out our Tree Resource Page for more or our Social, Economic, & Environmental Benefits of Trees Info Sheet. Here are a few more links to articles about our plantings at schools. It’s fun to remember the kids & trees over the years!
We thought it would also be fun to take a look back at our Arbor Day plantings through the years. Enjoy! You can also see more pics of the fun plantings in our ARBOR DAY PHOTO GALLERY. Finally, you can also learn more at Arbor Day website https://www.arborday.org/
