A very successful initiative of our Parks and Trees Committee is the ‘Tree Buddies’ program. Saplings purchased by the LPRA (your membership dues at work!) are given to Grade 1 ‘Tree Buddies’ at Blythwood Public School, who take them home to be planted. Each year more than 60 saplings are planted. (Thank you, Tree Buddy parents.)
Plans are underway to expand it to other local schools in 2015!
