From Washington Jr. High School's gym to parks across the country, Washington Jr. High students are making a big impact.
For two days students helped wrapped tree saplings. It's part of Living Lands & Waters Million Trees Project. While the organization has reached its million trees planted goal, this year they hope to get 150,000 trees planted. To do so takes a lot of work. That's where volunteers come in, volunteers like WJHS students.
Students created an assembly line and would wrap the tree saplings, dip it in water and then bag it. These trees will be shipped to 22 states across the country! For students, it was a great learning experience about giving back to your community.
During Living Lands & Water's two-day visit, students wrapped more than 6,000 trees!
