Coillte Celebrate Tree Day 2017
Coillte celebrated Tetra Pak Tree Day 2017 with a visit to Avondale forest park from Carysfort National School, Arklow County Wicklow.
Over 120 children enjoyed the fine weather on the day and were led on forest walks through the park by Coillte staff. The children learned all about the different types of trees that grow in Avondale forest park and a great day was had by all.
This year’s theme for Tetra Pak Tree Day is Our Planet, Our Choice or Ár bPláinéid, Ár Rogha and the campaign is all about the importance of natural resources like our trees.
