Over the course of several days in May, students from Glacier Middle School in Buckley ventured to a restoration site on the White River to get some work done. Over 100 native plants had been installed at the site and the blackberries loomed menacingly on the outskirts of the planting area. The 8th graders dug up those blackberry roots, placed burlap and mulch, and practiced their plant identification skills.
The 14 classes were quite the workforce and we appreciate their help, just as we're sure they appreciated getting outside for a brief break from state testing!
