Arbor Month/Kindergarten Trees
Close to 200 students from area schools received birch trees and stickers as part of the national celebration of Arbor Month. The students took part in a discussion about the importance of trees in our world and imagined what the world would be like without them. They were also given instructions on how to plant, protect, and take care of their trees so they grow up big and strong.
The trees are funded in memory of Dorothy Hanson, a former kindergarten teacher at at Northrup School in Thief River Falls.
