We Helped Plant a Forest! #green #reforestation
This past weekend, my family and I headed over to Big Bone Lick State Park in Union, KY to help with a reforestation project. This project is headed by the Northern Kentucky Urban and Community Forestry Council and invites volunteers to help plant a forest. Can you imagine how exciting it was to be part of this movement? We had a jam packed weekend but we just had to squeeze this in.
The girls had so much fun and were really a lot of help in planting trees. We planted a row and a half of trees our selves. There were many other volunteers there, as you can see. This was just a section of the area that people were planting in.
Although it was cool out, the girls stuck with it. At least it wasn't raining...or snowing...or even worse, in the teens like it had been the two mornings before!
