Plant-a-Tree

Through the 26th annual Plant-a-Tree program, the Oswego County Soil and Water Conservation District and the Cornell Cooperative Extension of Oswego County 4-H Program gave away more than 3,900 tree seedlings on April 19 and 20, 2017. The program was funded by Entergy Nuclear Northeast and the Oswego County Federation of Sportsmen’s Clubs.

Educational materials, posters, and trees were given to Oswego County students in grades pre-kindergarten through five, whose teachers registered for the program. A total of 223 teachers and 3,910 students from 14 different schools participated.

The goal of Plant-a-Tree is to have students gain an understanding of the importance of trees in our environment. Students are provided with a hands-on opportunity to be environmental stewards as they are encouraged to plant the seedling at home or as a class project around school grounds or on community property.
