By Breanna Collins, AmeriCorps VISTA in Grafton
The cold and rainy weather didn’t stop All Aboard Grafton members and local volunteers, ranging from small children to more seasoned adults, from planting trees around Grafton, in honor of Earth Day last weekend.
The group planted trees in vacant lots behind Latrobe Street as well as the Maple Avenue Park and the city park below the Tygart Lake Dam.
This group was dedicated to helping the environment and passionate about volunteering their time to making Grafton a more beautiful place.
They planted a variety of trees: Yellow Poplars, Red Oaks, Sugar Maples, Black Walnut and Shagbark Hickory. And they all look forward to continuing this great local tradition.
