Grade 1 students at École Barrie Wilson Elementary School joined in province-wide Arbor Day celebrations on Wednesday.
About 1,500 local students received Lodgepole pine seedlings to plant at home or in a natural area in Red Deer.
Each Arbor Day, a local school is picked as the location in which a tree is planted. The City of Red Deer is donating a Bur Oak for the event.
Arbor Day is hosted by the City of Red Deer in partnership with Alberta Environment and Sustainable Resource Development, Appollo Landscaping Services, Red Deer Public Schools, Red Deer Catholic Schools and all private schools.
