Trees Are Terrific! (And So Is Art)
Fifth-grader Amelia Myers took first prize in Delaware’s Arbor day Poster Contest.
Delaware students’ appreciation for trees was on full display last month at the Delaware Reserve’s newly planted science garden. Together with the state’s Department of Agriculture’s Forest Service, the Reserve hosted an Arbor Day Celebration that honored the winners of an elementary student poster contest. The theme was “Trees are Terrific for Pollinators.” Following the ceremony, poster winners helped plant two large hawthorn trees planted on either side of the science garden to attract pollinators.
The ceremony included presentations from (back row, from left) Delaware Department of Agriculture (DDA) Secretary Michael Scuse, Governor John Carney, DNREC Secretary Shawn Garvin, and Delaware Forest Service assistant state forester Kyle Hoyd. Photo courtesy of the Delaware Forest Service.
