28 Teens from Build On volunteered thier time and enegy alongside a few Tree Care Captains.
30 trees on Lexington and East 117th and East 118th were weeded, aerated and litter was bagged and removed. Ornamental grass was also planted to remind the community to keep the tree beds clean and free of debris. The teen volunteers from Build On were a wonderful example of enthusiasm and comittment to the environment.
