We planted 3 trees! 2 Eastern Red Cedars and 1 Northern White Cedar (native). The trees now shade the vernal pool which will become more habitable by various local wildlife (shade cools the pool down). The highschoolers really did an amazing job and we couldn't have done it without them.

We fully cleared out the area behind the midbridge garden (removing knotweed "stumps" and 2 small tree stumps) and laid a weighted tarp down to suppress growth and prepare the site for further planting. The other existing planting beds of the area were further weeded and maintained. The existing birch tree was extensively pruned to create un-impeded walkways.
