WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) -- Some brand new trees are now growing in West Lafayette thanks to kids from Burgett's Learning Center.
The kids planted eight trees along Lindberg Road this morning along with volunteers and West Lafayette Tree Friends to celebrate Arbor Day.
Planting trees on Arbor Day is an annual tradition for West Lafayette Tree Friends.
Dan Dunten of Parks and Recreation Department and the director of the Lilly Nature Center hopes the tree planting will have a positive impact on the children.
"Hopefully people understand the importance of trees to the lives of everybody and hopefully we shared that with these young people today," said Dunten.
This is not the first time kids from Burgett's Learning Center.
"Hopefully they'll remember these trees that they planted when they were young and when they're older they can drive by here and see the trees they planted and remember this and hopefully it will be a meaningful experience for them," said Dunten.
Dunten also said if you would like help planting a tree of your own, you can contact West Lafayette Tree Friends.
