SAMPLE PROJECT
Plant a Tree
Planting trees each year on your school grounds can serve many purposes:

  • improve air quality

  • absorb rainwater where it accumulates on school grounds

Trees can be planted to celebrate Arbor Day or to honor someone special to your school family. Every school needs more trees!
