The San Diego 4-H celebrated the 100th anniversary of 4-H by planting a Bur Oak tree Sunday afternoon at the San Diego Fire Department. The tree was dedicated by the club for all fallen heroes.
The San Diego 4-H partnered with the Texas A&M Forest Service to celebrate the agency's 100th anniversary.
The 4-H club planted a Bur Oak and shrubs along the fire station.
The One Day 4-H is set aside for members of the organization to provide community service in their area.
Texas A&M Forest Service was created in 1915. The agency is tasked to converse forests and related natural resources and to protect lives and property from wildfire.
"The one-day project is a way to give back to the community whether it's planting a tree, helping neighbor's cut grass or holding a special event," said Duval County Extension Agent Travis Trevino. "Planting a tree is a great way for everyone to learn how plants and trees provide clean air."
"The tree is in a prefect place for the community to see especially those (planting the tree)," he said. "They will see it for years, every time they pass by."
