St. Pats Students Take Part In Arbor Day Tree Planting!

By Sheldon Spackman

Grade One students in Red Deer and all across Alberta received tree seedlings on Wednesday to mark Arbor Day on May 10th. It’s an event celebrated in several countries to encourage the planting and care of trees. A White Spruce tree was planted on the west side of Red Deer’s St. Patrick’s Community School on Wednesday morning to mark the occasion.

City officials say over 1,500 Grade Ones received a seedling, which they are encouraged to plant at home or in a natural area in Red Deer. Each Arbor Day, a local school is picked as the location in which a tree is planted.

Arbor Day is hosted by The City of Red Deer in partnership with Alberta Environment and Sustainable Resource Development, Appollo Landscaping Services, Red Deer Public Schools, Red Deer Catholic Schools and all private schools.
