Last week, the City of Turlock, in partnership with the Turlock Unified School District, celebrated Go Green Week to help teach local students about the importance conservation and pollution prevention.
Now in its eighth year, Go Green Week has approximately 11,400 student and faculty participants in grades K-12 at all TUSD campuses.
One such campus that participated was Julien Elementary School, who participated in a tree planting activity on March 17.
The City of Turlock sent four representatives to teach 120 sixth-graders the importance of trees and how to care for trees.
Students helped dig the holes, bury the roots, and install poles to stabilize the newly planted trees.
During the week, students also organized recycling center stations, had a ladybug release, and received a visit from the Gro Green mascot.
