YSOP Workday at Burrville ES

October 27th, 2012

In partnership with Living Classrooms of the National Capital Region, we worked on a reforestation project at Burrville Elementary School. In a planting bed adjacent to the front entrance of the school we created a small representation of a forested area. Volunteers from Youth Services Opportunities Project (YSOP) helped us to clear the area of invasive plants and prepare the site for the installation of native plants. Tackling those invasive plants is always a labor-intensive job — thank you YSOP volunteers!
