Planting A New Forest

Fourth graders at School in the Woods in Black Forest planted about 400 seedlings in the charred forest near their school.

Last year the Black Forest fire came very close to School of the Woods, but the school was spared by the fire. Fourth grader Hannah Jasper carefully makes a water reservoir for one of 400 tree seedlings that were planted by the school children in the charred woods near the school on Thursday, May 15, 2014.
