Students Plant Trees & Get Lesson On Environment - wjz.com:
It was more than just a walk in the park for some Baltimore City students Friday. They were working hard and getting an up close and personal lesson about the environment.
They were digging and mulching in Druid Hill Park Friday.
Dozens of Baltimore City students came to the park to get a better understanding of the importance of trees.
The big dig is sponsored by the Greater Baltimore Urban League.
'They're actually planting trees, putting mulch around trees that need mulch and nutrients. They're doing all kinds of activities and they'll be doing it several hours today,' said Stephen Rice, Vice President of the Greater Baltimore Urban League. 'It's important because it's an opportunity for us to actually do something to improve our environment.'
