How will you celebrate Earth Day? Maybe you will want to plant this Dawn Redwood (Metasequoia glyptostroboides tree?) Once believed to be extinct for millions of years, until 1946 when a Chinese forester discovered the first living specimen in the middle of a rice paddy in Tsang Wang. It was named the "discovery tree" and symbolizes the surprises still to be found in nature. Includes seed, growing medium, coconut husks for drainage, leak-proof bag & directions. Bag 7" high x 6" wide.
A fun way to teach children about Earth Day would be to participate in planting a once extinct tree on April 22. Earth Day is the largest secular observance in the world, celebrated by more than a billion people.
