Learning with Trees at Lyndale!
Tree Trust icon

This year, Lyndale School is participating in the Tree Trust Learning with Trees program (treetrust.org/programs/community-forestry/learning-with-trees/). This program, funded by CenterPoint Energy, helps schools develop outdoor environmental learning areas on their school grounds and provides opportunities for hands on, outdoor environmental education. Since 1992, Tree Trust has developed outdoor learning areas with over 185 Minnesota schools!

Learning with Trees is a year-long program that culminates in a school-wide tree planting day in the spring ~ a fitting way to begin the growth of a new environmental learning program.

Please join us for a school-wide celebration at 2pm on Monday, April 30 outside the school!
