Celebrating Mother Nature on Earth Day 2010
…The white pine was donated by Showers Tree Farm in Aspers. Farm Operator Matt Showers, brother of the teacher, and his wife, Sonya, were on hand to teach the class about how trees grow and who/what is impacted by their growth. They also distributed coloring books to the class, and one lucky student received a farm gift certificate after correctly answering a trivia question.
Miss Showers said the hands-on activity was the culmination of her class’ unit on animal habitat and was a great way to celebrate Earth Day.
