Students from West Brook’s Quest Club recently teamed up with Beautify Beaumont for a second year to bring a little more green to our area. On Saturday, March 1, 2014 students distributed trees to shoppers at the HEB on Dowlen road.
During the giveaway, students handed out four different species of trees to help replace the ones that have been lost during hurricanes and other acts of nature. Students also handed out information with each tree on how tree planting can conserve energy and reduce electricity consumption.
The students work each year to raise funds for the purchase of the trees and spend a day potting the bare root trees for the giveaway. The Quest Club looks forward to planting the seeds of “greenness” one tree at a time in our community and looks to continue this activity for years to come.
