Tree teachings

Radio Disney's Ranger Spruce Sassafras quizzed third-graders at Sandston Elementary about their knowledge of tree trivia during a recent visit to the school. The students learned about trees and the environment with Project Plant It!, a program developed by Dominion to educate students, plant trees and improve the environment.

Project Plant It!, which received a national award from the Arbor Day Foundation, distributed free tree seedlings to each participating student on Arbor Day (April 27). The program provided teachers with a comprehensive kit of lesson plans and other instructional materials.
