Each year, around 200,000 Australian school students participate in a special National Tree Day event designed just for children, called Schools Tree Day. It’s a wonderful opportunity to get kids into nature, instill a love for the great outdoors, and teach them the importance of environmental stewardship and taking care of the planet. Students nationwide learn how to plant and care for the seedlings they grow.

There’s many ways for schools to get involved. Visit www.treeday.planetark.org/schools for more information.
