Growing Young Minds and Trees with Dominion’s Project Plant It!




Redbud trees are among the first to blossom in the spring and, thanks to Dominion’s Project Plant It!, thousands of children will get their own redbud seedling to celebrate Arbor Day in April. The environmental education program was created in 2007 to teach children about the role of trees in the ecosystem. A comprehensive Educator’s Guide, complete with lesson plans and hands-on activities for a classroom or group, is available—Project Plant It!’s instructional tools can easily be adapted to all age and grade levels from preschool through college, as well as for use in scout groups, civic clubs and other organizations that work with children.
