This week marks the 6th Annual Streamside Forest Recovery Project.
It's an effort to help bring awareness to some of the restoration efforts around nearby creeks.
Around 40, 5th and 6th graders from Willow Wind School in Ashland took a field trip just behind their school Tuesday along Bear Creek.
It's part of Lomakatsi's Restoration Project, the non-profit enviornmental group was recently rewarded with an $8,000 grant from the US0 Fish and Wildlife Service to expand their project areas.
Students were able to plant new trees along the creek and also search for micro-organisms in the water.
The idea of getting students involved is to show them that they can help make a difference on the environment in which we call home.
