Nearly 600 third-, fourth-, and fifth-grade students from across Tulare County will celebrate this Arbor Day at Mooney Grove Park.
They will learn about the importance of, and care for, trees in the environment. Topics including seeds, insects, mulch and the water system. Local environmental experts from organizations such as SCICON and the University of California’s Master Gardeners conduct these fun-filled, activity-based lessons.
Additionally, students tour the County museum and learn about the rich agricultural history of our valley.
They will also plant a tree at Mooney Grove to help with the park’s restoration. Each student will not only learn how to plant trees properly, but will be given their very own tree seedling to take home and plant with their family!
Teachers also participate in the environmental lessons.
