Reforestation project kicks off!

On Saturday August 26th, volunteers from the College of Wooster swim team helped initiate a reforestation project at Wooster Memorial Park. About 80 native trees were protected from deer browsing in the Ostroski meadow (using tree tubes, see below). With this assistance, these young trees will gradually turn a old field into a young forest, providing valuable wildlife habitat and carbon sequestration benefits. Many hands make light work – thanks all for your help!
