Natural Awakenings Richmond

Feb 27, 2015 01:44PM

One sure sign of spring is when school systems around Richmond partner with Dominion’s Project Plant It! to teach third-grade students about the many benefits that trees provide to the ecosystem. Each participating student receives a redbud tree seedling to plant on Arbor Day, April 24.

Project Plant It! is provided by Dominion, parent company to Dominion Virginia Power, at no cost to schools or teachers. Along with the seedlings, instructional tools including lesson plans, posters, certificates and online learning activities are also provided, supporting the SOLs and knowledge skills in core subjects.
