Friday, November 03, 2017


Today, juniors and seniors from High Point Regional High School attended a fall planting day organized by the SCMUA-Wallkill River Watershed Management Group. The students planted and protected 150 native trees along the West Branch of Papakating Creek, building off of the initial planting that was completed by last year’s Advanced Placement Environmental Science class at the school.

To date, 350 trees and shrubs have been planted along the stream, providing a hands-on learning experience for students interested in entering the environmental field after college.
