Did you know that we get more than fruit and nuts and paper products from trees?  How about chewing gum, rubber bands and shoe polish?  Students at Mclane Elementary will learn this and more about the importance of trees in our environment.  Roots and Branches will be presenting a TV game show program where a few students will compete while the student body cheers them on. Each year the program is rotated between all public and parochial schools in West Bend.  This is the twenty-ninth year that Roots and Branches has presented the Arbor Day Program in the schools.

After the program the City Park & Recreation Department will demonstrate how to plant a tree on the school grounds.  Service Berry trees will be given to all 4th grade students in the public schools and 5th grade students in the parochial schools throughout the city to take home and plant with their families.  Several local and state government officials attend the event.  The Tree City flag will be given to the city from the state DNR. WE Energies is sponsoring the Arbor Day Program again this year.

Interested in helping??? Volunteers are always needed to help pack and prepare over 600 service berry trees on Tuesday, April 23rd 9:00 am—Regnar Park Pavilion. Click Here to Volunteer.
