Planting Trees is Fun!  

Canopy staff and volunteers recently offered a environmental science lesson and tree planting at Brentwood Academy in East Palo Alto. Kids learned everything about trees from roots to canopy.

Assemblyman Rich Gordon
and Gloria Hernandez, Superintendent of East Palo Alto's Ravenswood City School District, dropped by to help Brentwood 4th graders plant a new young tree near the play ground.
