Habitat Helpers Plant Oak Trees


The Bellefontaine Intermediate School Fourth Grade Habitat Helpers Team recently planted oak trees at Bellefontaine Elementary School.

The trees are red oak and pin oak saplings.

The Habitat Helpers hope to add beauty to the area and help the nearby animals.

Students placed tree protectors around the trees for protection from the wind and wildlife until they grow a little bigger.

Oak trees are one of the best native trees in Ohio as they provide food and shelter to much of Bellefontaine’s wildlife.

Thank you to the following students and their families for spending time planting the oak saplings: Ethan Wick, Aaron Hughes, Brady Wilson, Ellie Wilson, Elena Fields, Tatum Nolan, Isaac Erickson, and Triston Keykens-Robinson.
