NR students celebrate Arbor Day
New Richmond fourth-graders spent April 29 at Cyclone Park to celebrate Arbor Day.
The fourth-graders spent about an hour at demonstrations learning about pruning, identifying and planting trees. At the end of the day, each class planted a tree in the park.
The annual Arbor Day celebration began in 2007 when 13, 10-foot trees were planted along Richmond Way by Westfield Hospital. Last year trees were planted at Paperjack Park.
