Oakenwald Elementary School Receives Tree Donation

By Sarah Klein

Oakenwald Elementary School will plant several new trees on its property this afternoon.

The Winnipeg school was one of the recipients of Tree Canada’s “Greening Canada’s School Grounds,” which received a $85,000 donation from Golder Associates Ltd. to plant trees at 20 schools across Canada.

Besides planting and maintaining the trees, Tree Canada will also conduct first-, second- and fifth-year assessments on the trees.

The planting will take place at 1 p.m.
