Learning with Trees Grant for Schools

by , posted on 10:41 AM, July 26, 2016
Tree Trust’s Learning with Trees program connects school staff, parents, community members, and students to bring environmental learning to Minnesota elementary schools through tree plantings and the creation of a outdoor classroom on school grounds.

The Learning with Trees grant program partners with several Minnesota schools to educate youth about the importance of trees through hands-on environmental education each year. Schools come away with new trees for their school grounds, a usable outdoor classroom, and lessons for students about trees and the environment. This program is a lot of fun and has been a valuable learning experience for thousands of students and teachers across the state since 1992. It is FREE for schools to participate and it is valued at over $10,000. Here is a link to the website: http://treetrust.org/programs/community-forestry/learning-with-trees/
