Bloomington students plant 21 trees
This April, Hennepin County worked with Valley View Elementary and Middle School students in Bloomington to plant trees at the Hennepin County Library - Oxboro and on the middle school property. The students learned about Arbor Day, the benefits that trees provide, and how to properly plant a tree.
“The tree plantings were a great way for students to be involved with improving their community for future generations. Tree plantings help students become more observant about the trees around them and the benefits that trees provide,” Jen Kullgren, a Hennepin County forester, said.
