Arbor Day Tree project - RSVP members and VU staff will package nearly 500 individual tree seedlings. The seedlings will be distributed to fourth grade students at all Knox County elementary schools on April 28, Indiana's Arbor Day. Now in its 31st year, the project is co-sponsored by Vincennes University and Niehaus Lumber Company. Schools that will receive seedlings include Flaget, Franklin, North Knox Intermediate, Riley, South Knox, Tecumseh-Harrison, and Vigo.
VU has sponsored the project annually since 1987 to promote the planting of trees as a way to improve the environment and demonstrate community pride. It is estimated that more than 30,000 tree seedlings have been distributed through VU’s Arbor Day Tree project.
