Earth Club celebrates Arbor Day at Tuten Park.

On Saturday, March 14th, 30 volunteers from the St. Louis Catholic Earth Club hosted 2 booths for the Arbor Day celebration at Tuten Park. Tuten Park hosts a family friendly celebration on Arbor Day each year for the public to come out and enjoy nature, participate in fun crafts, and receive free tree seedlings. One Earth Club booth brought awareness to the dangers of storm drain runoff and nonpoint source pollution. The Earth Club also had a craft project making “seed bombs." The students were even featured on the 6 o’clock news on KPLC Saturday evening! The students from St. Louis were extremely excited to share their knowledge and interact with the public on all they have learned from the club this year. Stay classy, never trashy!
