Help plant trees on Earth Day to reforest ten acres of open grass at Oaks Landfill in Laytonsville. The Montgomery County Department of Environmental Protection owns the property, and they received a grant from Chesapeake Bay Trust to help restore 5 – 10 acres of open, mowed grass to native hardwood forest.
Volunteer with fellow students from local high schools to earn Student Service Learning hours and help restore your local environment. Wear old shoes or boots, gloves, and clothing appropriate for planting trees. For more information and to sign up for the project contact Karen Walker 301-590.2855.
