RICHLAND, Wash. - People across Richland came together with shovels in hand, ready to plant trees for Arbor Day.
Businesses, city leaders, and students from Wiley Elementary were at the new City Hall to plant the trees. All of them were grown in the Tri-Cities.
"Trees are important because it gives us oxygen and it also helps out the environment," said Arianna Morley, a student at Wiley Elementary.
Kids got to learn how to properly plant a tree with soil, water, and the tree. A local rotary club assisted the students with the planting.
"It's fun giving back to our environment and to plant different trees," said Lilly Lucas, a classmate of Arianna's.
The mayor proclaimed April 19 as the city's Arbor Day.
