Jefferson Beautification and Parkway Promenade sponsored its annual Entergy Earth Day Education Fair at the Oswald-Dubea Arboretum at LaSalle Park in Metairie. More than 300 fifth-grade students from six Jefferson Parish elementary schools participated in different education activities presented by environmental and gardening experts.
The students finished the day with lunch in the arboretum. Each received a bald cypress seedling to plant at home.
The Entergy Earth Day Education Fair is one of several events that Jefferson Beautification hosts each year as part of its mission to promote tree planting and beautification through education and public awareness.
