In celebration of Arbor Day, the City of Delta and parks director Paul Suppes presented evergreen tree seedlings to fourth graders at Lincoln and Garnet Mesa elementary schools. The kids are now members of Fourth Grade Foresters.
While the Lincoln students were able to take their trees home to plant, Garnet Mesa students potted theirs and moved them to the school greenhouse. At the end of their fifth grade year, when they leave elementary school for middle school, they will hopefully have a healthy, growing tree to take with them. Suppes cautioned that not every seedling tree would survive, but hopefully most students will end up with a tree to call their own.blog comments powered by Disqus
