Arbor Day 2022

 On the last Friday in April, Scouts from Troop 9 participated in an Arbor Day tree planting celebration with the Champaign city forester (Andrew L.).  He presented to the scouts about the benefits of trees and the importance of planting trees. An open spot was selected to plant a Kentucky coffee tree across the street from the entrance of Holy Cross Church. Scouts had to first dig a hole, then line up the tree in that hole, they next had to backfill with soil and water for the tree’s roots, and lastly a 2-3 inch layer of woodchip mulch. All of the scouts who attended the planting earned conservation service hours.
