We tackled our pilot planting event for the new Shading Our Children Project in partnership with Southwest Allen County Schools! Covington Elementary School is now home to 30 new native trees that will provide a range of benefits for decades to come.
Thanks to business sponsors General Dynamics Mission Systems and Regan + Ferguson Group Realty for supporting this event with financial contributions and volunteer time. Thanks also to SACS staff and school board members Stephanie Veit and Kim Moppert for helping out!
This is the first of many similar planting events we hope to tackle with SACS in the coming years. Visit the Shading Our Children Project web page to learn more or sign up to help!
