RAHWAY—Third grade students at Franklin School in Rahway received free seedlings from the New Jersey Forest Service. The program is called Third Grade Tree Team which entitles each third grade student in the state to receive a free tree seedling. The program is aimed at teaching students the benefits of trees, while increasing their environmental awareness by having them plant the trees. This activity was done in celebration of Earth Day.
