Students from Easton High School, St. Michaels High School, and Chesapeake Christian School recently planted 1,400 trees at the RTC Park in Easton. We were all honored to have the story printed on the front page of The Star Democrat. The students were excited to pose for pictures and talk about their project.

This was not a one-day event. In-class, the students learned about the importance of forested stream buffers for habitat and Chesapeake Bay water quality. After receiving background lessons, they spent a day at the RTC Park assessing the soil, water, macroinvertebrates, plants, and birds. The baseline data they gathered will be used by future students to monitor the effects of the new forest. The students later researched native plants and created a planting plan, complete with a walking path for visitors.
