S’mass Last Shot: Earth Scouts plant trees on Independence Pass
Evie Curry, left, and Lia Hodgson of Snowmass Village plant trees on Independence Pass on Sept. 18.
The two 10-year-olds and the rest of the Farm Collaborative’s Earth Scouts worked with the Independence Pass Foundation to plant 15 Lodge Pole Pines.
The Earth Scouts, a group of elementary through middle school students who meet every Wednesday after school, have been working to find ways to address global climate challenges on a local level. Recently, the students deduced that if everyone plants 300 trees in their lifetimes, they can help stop global warming.
