Partnering with other colleges: Land conservation effort

February 27, 2015

Much environmental work requires a large number of people dedicated to a single, concentrated effort. This is exactly what took place at Sideling Hill Creek in Maryland when a team of students from Mount St. Mary s College, Garret Community College, and Frostburg State University joined community volunteers to engage in an environmental conservation effort. The volunteers spent the day planting pine seedlings along the creekbed. Over the course of the day, the group planted more than one thousand seedlings, covering three acres of land and widening the existing buffer along the creekbed by 200 feet.
