We don’t think about trees much on a daily basis, but just for a second, close your eyes, and imagine the world without trees.
Hard to imagine, isn’t it? Hopefully it will never become a reality.
Some folks took advantage of Edmonson County Conservation District’s tree seedling giveaway to help make sure that doesn’t happen. Over 800 seedlings were sent home with students at Kyrock and South Edmonson Elementary Schools, and over 700 seedlings were given away at the district office on April 13th 2017.
Here are some of our young people planting their trees!
Special thanks go out to those who sent in pictures and gave us permission to use them, and our volunteers, Wayne Thompson, Danny Vincent, Jimmie Luttrell, Sharon Luttrell, Mandy Abbott Jones, and Orville Johnson; we couldn’t do it without you.
