For the past six years, the 100-member-strong Alva
FFA has worked as the heart and soul of the Alva Tree Board, making an
impressive impact on the community. The FFA students not only have
planted and mulched over 500 trees, they also have planted several
hundred seedlings and received grants for an additional thousand.
For Arbor Day, the students were responsible for the program
held on the North West Oklahoma State University campus. They made
flyers for the celebration, conducted media interviews, and planted a
survivor tree from the Oklahoma City bombing.
This past year, they established a tree farm with over 500
seedlings successfully potted and growing. The judges called it “a very
strong and successful program which deserves much praise.” We’re proud
to say THE ALVA FFA IS GOOD NEWS FOR THE ENVIRONMENT TAKING ROOT IN OKLAHOMA!
