We had 200 Laurel 4th graders from both the public school, home schoolers, Baptist academy and New Life school. We started with a BBQ, ceremony, then tree planting. 9 trees were planted around the pond to give shade and help anchor the banks. Then 8 presenters shared their expertise on subjects from fish, weeds, bees, fire safety, tree care, pests and electrical lines.
All students enjoyed learning more about the Park and it’s needs as well as it planting trees that will enhance the parks beauty. Donors for this Laurel Tree Board sponsored event were The Lions Club, NW Energy, DNRC, Yellowstone Bank, Western Security Bank, Dynamic Design, ACE Hardware , and Laurel Public Schools.
