2016 Seedlings for Schools Program

The Game Commission has two programs that offers free tree seedlings for your students based on grade level, K-12. “Seedlings for Your Class” is primarily for pre-K and elementary students. As part of this program, the Game Commission provides a classroom or one grade level with enough seedlings for each student to take a seedling home to plant. Seedling choices are white spruce and assorted flowering crabapple. A teachers’ guide and planting instructions come with the seedlings and can also be accessed through the website.
