Though weather outside was frightful,
The day was still delightful!
Despite the wintry chill, these students planted 100 native Douglas-fir, Western Red Cedar, Grand Fir, Snowberry, Oceaspray, Red Elderberry, White Oak and Vine Maple! And removed dozens of invasive blackberry roots. AND removed eight giant boards for more room to plant. AND found some rough-skinned newts and salamanders! AND rewrote this holiday classic… Featuring Ms. Cole, Ms. Lacks’ and their Valley Catholic High School Biology students!
THANK YOU, Valley Catholic for your dedication to Johnson Creek! Happy Holidays…and see you in the spring!
