Branching Out

In partnership with University of KY and our local municipality (Lexington Fayette Urban County Government), six Fayette Co Public Schools will plant 40 trees on our campuses Oct 10th, 11th and 12th. These plantings will purposefully engage students in the benefits of an urban tree canopy before/after the plantings through lesson plans, schools will ADOPT the trees by calculating their ecological benefits, and students will dig the holes + plant the trees + mulch the areas.

Intended impact of project
