White spruce seedlings are presented to every grade one student in Red Deer during the first week of May. We appreciate the assistance of school principals and teachers for helping us with this program and promoting the value of trees in our environment. Thank you to Alberta Environment and Protected Areas for supplying free seedlings for our Arbor Day activities.
