Greening Greene County
6/10/10 - 4:04 pm
In May, students hailing from Manhattan Comprehensive Day and Night HS trucked up to Greene County to plant trees along the once-degraded Batavia Kill with kids from Jefferson Central and Gilboa-Conesville Schools. Our columnist Aaron Bennett was there with them, and snapped the photo above.
The jaunt was funded by the Catskill Watershed Corporation and led by GrowNYC Environmental Education Director Michael Zamm, who described the trip to us in an email:
They spent half a day doing the planting, then went on the overnight which included hikes and a visit to an organic farm. They planted 2700 total plants -- 250 were trees. They stayed at the Sherwood House, run by the Catskill Mountain Foundation.
250 trees in one day? Not bad.
