OWOSSO PUBLIC SCHOOLS (OPS), Cargill, Inc. and Living Lands & Waters came together for World Earth Day on Friday, April 24 in the Armory parking lot in Owosso to deliver Red Oak tree saplings to interested participants. OPS was also offering free meal pickups at the same time, so many people could first stop in front of the Owosso Middle School for meals before picking up the healthy saplings to later plant in yards.
OPS Superintendent Dr. Andrea Tuttle can be seen handing out trees to some eager students, as well. The trees were delivered following COVID-19 safety protocols and social distancing.
One teen who picked up two of the small saplings, shared he had been inspired by his high school science teacher, Mr. Gerstler.
