Reynolds High School @ Beaver Creek on 12.5.2012
The dedicated students from Reynolds High School came to Beaver Creek for some after school planting. However, it was not your ordinary day. It was a day that will forever be known in history as the Planting Olympics.
There were the classic events: Who can remember the most native plant species, plant the most plants, and do the best job untangling the roots (especially Salmonberry roots)?
There were also the less common events: Who can carry the most plants (and people) in the assembly line down the hill?
Who can do the best joust with a shovel and a friend?
Who has the best shovel dance moves (with lots of space for safety)?
Reynolds deserves a Gold medal for all of their hard work. The only thing that stopped us was the setting sun (because it is unfortunately rather difficult to plant in the dark).
We planted 34 plants and had absolutely no fun at all….
A big thank you to The Boeing Company for sponsoring their efforts! See you guys after the break, Reynolds!
