Earth Day

 

Earth/Arbor Day 2014

Each year the Marblehead Conservancy Trails Committee plans and manages a combined local celebration of Earth and Arbor Days inviting public participation. For 2014, the event centered on the adjacent properties of the former Robinson and Jermyn farms. Administrators and students from the nearby Village Middle School joined with Girl Scouts, neighbors, and others who simply wanted to help in replanting cleared areas with native tree and shrub seedlings.

As often happens, some areas needed a little clearing before planting could begin.

These Girl Scouts make planting look easy, but this ground was full of roots from trees that had been removed earlier.

It’s never too early to learn how to plant, particularly when you have a great teacher
