Earth Day is a special day each year, reminding us all to take action to protect our planet. This year, why not make a lasting impact by planting a tree in your own yard or community? 

The Jasper County Public Library is partnering again with Neighborhood Forest to give free trees to area children for Earth Day.

Since 2010, Neighborhood Forest has reached over 900 schools, libraries, and youth groups – over 250,000 families – and have planted over 90,000 (mostly urban and residential) trees through the hands of children and parents across North America.

We are excited to be participating for the third year in this program that teaches kids stewardship through the magic and wonder of planting and watching trees grow.

Please fill out the online registration form by February 28th and receive a free tree (6-12 inches in size) during Earth Week (April 16-22).

Trees will be delivered to the library and we will arrange to get the trees in the hands of your children on or around Earth Day (April 16th).

Planting instructions and species information will be available closer to the trees' arrival.

Rensselaer Library 2023 form | DeMotte Library 2023 form | Wheatfield Library 2023 form

So, this Earth Day, take the time to plant a tree with your family. It's a simple and rewarding way to make a positive impact on the environment, and to teach your children important lessons about the value of nature and conservation.

With a little effort and cooperation, you can help make the world a better place, one tree at a time.
