Stowe Elementary students took lessons from the classroom to the woods. Students and members of the community planted trees on campus and throughout the woods. The tree-planting was part of a service learning project, teaching the kids the significance of trees. "It's really important for the children to understand where their things come from and to respect the environment and to respect nature," said Rheanna Letsos, True North Americorps Student Services Advocate. The students planted fifty seedlings which will grown into full white pine trees.
