The Rocky Point Lions Club has joined forces with the Fourth Grade Foresters Program to revitalize Arbor Day at our local schools. Over 900 fourth grade students from Laddie Decker Sound Beach School in Miller Place, Joseph A Edgar Intermediate School in Rocky Point, Wading River Elementary and Miller Avenue Schools in Shoreham / Wading River, and Mount Sinai Elementary School in Mount Sinai will join students across the nation to celebrate Arbor Day on April 26th by taking home a Norway spruce tree / seedling at no cost to them to plant at their homes.
The Rocky Point Lions are sponsoring this event to renew our young people’s interest in Arbor Day while enhancing our local environment. This will make it possible for these trees to be cared for in our local “Urban Forest”, and literally right in our own backyard. These trees will make an immediate impact both aesthetically and environmentally as well as for generations to come.
Watch as your local 4th graders set an example for all of us and please contact the Rocky Point Lions Club should you have any questions.
