Two groups of Little Flower students had the opportunity to plant and learn about trees last week.

At the Jaycee Park, students in kindergarten through second grade and fifth and sixth grades met with Michelle Lowman, of the Pierce County Soil Conservation District, and Yolanda Schmidt, Pierce County extension service agent, and received a 30-minute lesson on various topics, including tree parts; soil types for tree planting; types of trees in the Rugby area; and the importance of trees.

Students then broke into groups and planted different types of trees, including Freeman maple; Scotch pine; Ponderosa pine; Golden willow; Peachleaf willow and Japanese lilac.
