Cincinnati’s Arbor Day in Mt. Storm Park
In a meaningful conclusion to Earth Week, the Cincinnati Park Board invited CANS students to take part in a ceremonial tree planting in one of our beautiful local parks – Mt. Storm. As part of a larger restoration that is happening in the park, volunteers from event sponsor Dynegy came to plant 50 new trees in a new grove along Lafayette Avenue. With leaders from the Parks Department, the Board of Parks Commissioners and Vice Mayor Christopher Smitherman in the audience, CANS kids gave many gifts they prepared in their classrooms to the new trees. And then, with little shovels in hand and rain boots on feet, our kids helped put a new little redbud into the ground.
