Rees E Price Academy Tree Planting Event
Taking Root was proud to participate in the launch of the Cincinnati Public Schools (CPS) Outside program at Rees E Price Academy on November 3rd, 2022. In partnership with Green Umbrella and with sponsorship from the Duke Energy Foundation, Taking Root provided 13 trees to the Rees E Price Academy. These trees were strategically located to provide shade for outdoor learning areas and to the school’s the parking lot. The Academy’s 2nd grade class participated in a ceremonial tree planting of a ‘Fall Fiesta’ Sugar Maple where the students learned about the great symbolism of the Maple including promise, longevity, generosity and intelligence. Following the ceremony, the class helped plant 12 other trees of different species across the campus. The Boone County Arboretum on Wheels joined the event and provided the students even more hands on learning experience about the benefits of trees and the nature they support.
