Staff and students at St. Anne’s Episcopal School in Middletown learned about trees as part of an outdoor learning project by planting 14 trees to establish a new bird plot on the school’s campus.
The project was funded by a Delaware Forest Service (DFS) urban and community forestry program grant. Children learned about the numerous benefits of trees, how the different parts of a tree help them grow and function, and then students participated in planting each of the new trees. The project was coordinated by DFS urban forestry associate Dionne Duphily and involved many other Forest Service staff.[meteor_slideshow, slideshow=01_st_anne]
