SEEDLINGS FOR SCHOOLS

Wildlife Foundation helped provide nearly 300,000 seedlings for students in 966 schools across PennsylvaniaState College, PA - A fifth grade student recounts in a thank you letter how he's been taking care of the white pine seedling given to him as part of the Pennsylvania Game Commission's Seedlings for Schools program last year. "I followed the directions and I hope it will grow to be big and strong. My pap and I put a barrel over it so no snow would hurt it," he states. Opportunities to plant and care for a tree seedling do not present themselves to youth readily, even less so to children in an urban setting. That's why Seedlings for Schools, a program of the Pennsylvania Game Commission, is so important. Since its inception in 2008, over 1 million seedlings have been distributed to schools statewide. Over the last 2 years, the Wildlife Foundation helped provide nearly 300,000 seedlings for students in 966 schools across Pennsylvania.
