TreeUtah School Outreach

Written by

Throughout the calendar year, we provide education and hands-on learning for all demographics, K-Higher Education. Tree plantings at K-12 schools are a great way to educate your students about trees and empower them to take ownership of their own environment. TreeUtah will bring kid-sized tools, trees, mulch and a curriculum for planting the trees. You can apply for our Tree Planting Grants (below) or if you have a business, you can contact us to sponsor a tree planting at a school of your choosing.

Read about some of these very special tree plantings and experiences we have engaging with our Utah education system communities. 

We spent a beautiful Saturday at the Bonneville Junior High Day of Service with Ivory Homes with so much gratitude to all the amazing volunteers and community who came out to serve and plant trees! Educating our young planters once again. We planted 7 new trees with students at Parkview Elementary. Trees provide shade, healthy air, and important habitats. Awesome work 4th and 5th graders. One of the students said that he used to want to be a baseball or basketball player when he grows up, but now he wants to be a forester! And at Rees Elementary School we planted 10 new Bosnian Pine trees on the school grounds. 

Important native tree plantings are happening this year at Jordan River with fantastic students from Granger High School and Judge Memorial. We planted harvested willow and cottonwoods native to the area to help reforest and restore natural habitat. During these events we also picked up over a dozen large bags of trash, highlighting the beauty of the natural area along the river even more. Students even gave up Spring Break time to serve and plant. 

TreeUtah spent a beautiful day at the Kauri Sue Hamilton School for a fun and educational tree planting. The Kauri Sue Hamilton School is a center-based school for students with significant disabilities. The land was donated by Cletus and Sharon Hamilton in gratitude for the special education services. TreeUtah is happy to be able to help further educate and beautify this space.

For higher education and adults, We teach workshops, guided tree identification nature hikes, and host permaculture workdays at our EcoGarden. Visit our Events page to see what's coming up!
