FORT ASHBY – Nearly 100 Mineral County students stepped outside of the classroom this fall to get their feet wet and hands dirty while learning about local streams and planting hundreds of trees.

Students discovered a wide variety of underwater life, tested the chemical properties of the stream, and evaluated how local land use impacts these results.
