Marching to a Different Drum

High School Students Plant Slash Pines in  Markham Park

On Monday, February 16, 2009, about 40 marching band students from Taravella High School came to  Markham Park to plant trees.  They planted almost 1,000 trees in the park's primitive camping area.  The students were enthusiastic and worked from 8:30 a.m. to noon.  Thanks Taravella students!
