CS6 Students Spring to Volunteer

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Saturday, April 13th brought several Conserve School CS6 students to Trees for Tomorrow in Eagle River.  The students earned community service hours helping with the organization’s Spring Celebration event that was unfortunately held completely inside due to winter’s persistence.  Despite the less than springy conditions, students and the graduate fellow chaperones, Pete Gizyn and Maria Kopecky, had a great time.

The annual Spring Celebration at Trees for Tomorrow is a free event where young people can attend for a couple of hours and partake in a variety of events.  Conserve School students helped set-up and take-down the event, staffed various stations involving the handling of live animals, craft creating, cookie decorating, and photo taking.  Attendees also got to hear a presentation from Bart representing the Northwoods Wildlife Center in Minocqua who brought several live animals, including the owl that you see in the picture.   Over 50 kids attended the event and Trees for Tomorrow staff members were grateful for the help provided by CS6 students!
