“There are these opportunities and there are these things happening here in close proximity to where they live, and if we can raise that awareness with youth and continue to grow that up and through our community, that’s pretty awesome,” said Carrie Karl, Volunteer Coordinator.
Organizers say the project not only improves forest habitats but also enhanced the beauty of the park for nature lovers.
