Do you like Earth? Well, Earth Day is right around the corner, and as you may have guessed from the context of this sentence so far, the Hamilton Public Library is celebrating! This year, we are taking part in the 12th Annual Neighborhood Forest free tree program, whose aim is to provide free trees to kids every Earth Day!
This program is open to all children up to 18 years old, all you have to do is fill out an online registration form by March 21st. Note: Please use “Hamilton Public Library” for your school and teacher’s name during registration. Oh, and where is this online registration form? On our website, social media outlets, and at the end of this blog post!
Each participant will receive a free tree, about a foot in height, that will be picked up at the library during Earth Week, April 22-30. Parents will receive a reminder email a week before the trees arrive from Neighborhood Forest with the variety of trees as well as care and planting instructions.
We are excited to participate in this wonderful program that teaches kids stewardship through the magic and wonder of planting and watching trees grow.
