'Be a true friend of the environment'
'Bí dílis don dúlra'
Tetra Pak Tree Day - October 8th 2015
Lá na gCrann 2015 – 8th Deireadh Fómhair

Tetra Pak Tree day is organised each year by the Tree Council of Ireland with the support of its members and the Green Schools and is sponsored for the last eighteen years by Tetra Pak, in association with Avonmore School Milk.

On Tetra Pak Tree Day schools around the county are invited to spend the day learning about trees and being outside enjoying their natural environment.
The Theme this year is: "Be a True Friend of the Environment", "Bí dílis don dúlra".
On Tetra Pak Tree Day schools take part in guided tree and woodland walks at various locations throughout the country. It's an opportunity for children, teachers and parents to connect directly with trees, nature and the outdoors. One of the main aims of Tetra Pak Tree Day is to educate primary school children about the importance of trees and forests in their everyday lives.

Schools can also avail of a guided woodland walk at various locations and these walks are organised in association with the National Parks & Wildlife Service, Coillte, the OPW, the Dublin local authorities and some private owners. Each year a different native tree is highlighted on Tetra Pak Tree Day and this year it is the turn of the hazel tree.

To support Tetra Pak Tree Day, the Tree Council has developed www.treeday.ie, a website dedicated to the study of trees. This website contains a comprehensive resource pack for use by teachers which is complimentary to the primary school science syllabus. This resource pack is available in both Irish and English.

Over the years, teachers have been enormously co-operative and enthusiastic about Tetra Pak Tree Day. We look forward to another Tetra Pak Tree Day with similar enthusiasm and commitment.
