BMS students began their annual tree-planting tradition in the BMS School Forest this past week. Students from many of the pods are roaming the school forest looking for good spots to plant the nearly 3000 tamaracks, cedars, red pine, and jack pines donated by the DNR.  Weather conditions are ideal and students have been taught proper tree planting protocols.  The Bemidji Middle School forest has had the benefit of thousands of students planting a wide variety of trees throughout the years.  The public are always invited to walk the grounds and enjoy the wonders of this truly wonderful school forest.  A kiosk at the south end of the main parking lot shows the entire school forest area and trails. Benches are spotted throughout the area for relaxing and taking in nature.
