‘Project Plant It!’ cultivates love of environment
This spring, more than 10,000 elementary students in the Richmond region, including about 1,800 in Henrico County like these students (above) from Rivers Edge Elementary, are participating in Project Plant It!, a program developed by Dominion to educate children, plant trees and improve the environment.
Project Plant It! distributes free tree seedlings to each participating student. The program provides teachers with a comprehensive kit of lesson plans, posters, stickers and other instructional tools that align with Standards of Learning in core curriculum subjects. Project Plant It! has reached more than 100,000 students since 2007. For details or to download lesson plans, view videos or play educational games about trees, visit http://www.projectplantit.com
