WIU student teaches kids a lesson about trees
Arbor Day-related activity concludes with tree planting
MINOOKA — By speaking with one fourth-grade class at Minooka Elementary School, Western Illinois University student and Minooka native Adam VanDolson hopes to spread the desire to plant trees throughout the town.
"You've got 30 kids here. Then they go home and tell their parents, 'I want to plant a tree.' That's 30 trees in the ground, possibly," VanDolson said. "Then once they tell their friends, the whole class is doing it."
VanDolson is an agricultural business major at WIU. He was assigned to speak to a class about the importance of planting trees in recognition of Arbor Day, Friday, April 27. He chose to visit Lindsay Greenberg's fourth-grade class at Minooka Elementary, the class his little sister Jacqui is in, on Monday, April 23.
