2021-2022 Peace Park Tree Planting, Aurora Elementary School, Drayton Valley
Grade four students at Aurora Elementary School want to leave an environmental legacy for future students by planting and carefully caring for a Peace Tree in a nearby park. Students will learn about the positive environmental impact of their tree as it grows, measuring the amount of carbon dioxide it absorbs and the animal life that it supports. Over the years, these students hope that future grade four students will continue planting a tree each year, resulting in a small forest. This Student Action Challenge project demonstrates that small actions can have a big impact.
