2020: Through the 29th annual Plant-a-Tree program, the Oswego County Soil and Water Conservation District and the Cornell Cooperative Extension of Oswego County 4-H Program distributed 1,500 Norway spruce tree seedlings the week of April 20. Due to COVID-19, non-contact deliveries were made to educators who signed up. The program was funded by Exelon Generation and the Oswego County Federation of Sportsmen’s Clubs.
The trees were then given to Oswego County students. The goal of Plant-a-Tree is to have students gain an understanding of the importance of trees in our environment and provide them with a hands-on opportunity to be environmental stewards by planting their own tree.
