Free Trees for Earth Day!
2/23/2023 10:05 am
Bethany Elementary is celebrating Earth Week (Earth Day – April 22 | Neighborhood Forest Day – April 26 | Arbor Day – April 28) this spring by participating in the 14th Annual Neighborhood Forest free tree program, whose aim is to provide free trees to kids every spring. Since 2010, Neighborhood Forest has engaged over 1,000 institutions, reached over 250,000 families and planted over 90,000 (mostly urban and residential) trees through the hands of children and parents across North America. Check out this cute video.
The Bethany Elementary PTA endorses this project and are excited to be participating in this wonderful program that teaches kids stewardship through the magic and wonder of planting and watching trees grow.
Please fill out the following online registration form by March 10th and receive a free tree (6-12 inches in size) during Earth Week (April 22-30). Exact species will be revealed in early April.
You will also have the option to purchase additional trees and tree-related educational products (via the registration form). The purchases will help fund more free trees for kids.
Trees will be delivered to us and we will arrange to get the trees in the hands of your children on or around Earth Day (April 22nd) either via pick up or sending home with your child(ren).
Other products that are purchased by you will be fulfilled by Neighborhood Forest.
Planting and care instructions, as well as species information will be emailed a few days prior to the trees arriving and will be available in the “Resources” section of the Neighborhood Forest website. If you have more questions, please check out the Parent FAQs.
