When Projects Become a Reality!
EarthTeam’s Urban Forestry Intern’s projects are coming to life in the city of San Pablo this semester. After weeks of research at two separate siteS off campus these students collected data on wind velocity, soil quality, sun exposure, site uses and mapping. Our interns then created Forestry plans for the sites and submitted them to the city for approval. Students decided where, how many trees and what species would best fit the two green spaces not too far from campus. The city of San Pablo has approved the the intern’s plans! Now it’s time to make those ideas a reality. Recently students went to their sites to stake and 811 their tree locations. Energies were high this week as students learned that they will soon be transforming these locations for their community. Next step? Our first student-led planting on December 6th to put our trees in the ground.
