Perkerson Elementary and Trinity School Visit the TreeHouse
Every fall, the education staff of Trees Atlanta works with the teachers and 5th grade students of Perkerson Elementary School in southwest Atlanta and Trinity School in Buckhead to come together for an Urban Forest Preservation Day. Students from both schools kick off the day with an icebreaker activity to get the kids, teachers, and volunteers energized about the day’s activities.
The main goals of the workday are to get children outdoors, to teach them about their environment and how to take care of it, and to encourage them to work and play with new friends from different parts of the city. Furthermore, students and teachers are able to utilize their campus urban forest in their daily lessons throughout the year.
Trees Atlanta is delighted to be hosting the 3rd Annual Urban Forest Preservation Day at the TreeHouse this month!
