SEEDLINGS FOR SCHOOLS

Wildlife Foundation helped provide nearly 300,000 seedlings for students in 966 schools across Pennsylvania

State College, PA - The Seedlings for Schools program marked its 10th year anniversary with record number participation. This spring, a total of 160,276 students across Pennsylvania were presented with a seedling from Howard Nursery in central Pennsylvania to plant and watch it grow. That amounts to nearly 65,000 more children – a 68% increase over last year. This experience offers benefits far beyond adding a tree to the planet. In today's world of over-extended children who prefer an electronic device to fresh air, this program connects children to the outdoors by emphasizing their role in the conservation of our natural resources.
