This year Snow Hill Middle School’s 7th grade team has a service learning project with the National Aquarium’s Conservation team, which is in partnership with The Nature Conservancy and the Chesapeake Bay Trust. High Road student, Thomas, was able to join his peers to plant Atlantic white cedar trees, which is a vulnerable species in Maryland. This planting is part of an ongoing restoration effort through the Aquarium’s Atlantic white cedar program, which encourages students in Worcester and Somerset counties to become environmental stewards through hands-on opportunities to care for trees on their school grounds. Later this year, Thomas will have an opportunity to visit the Nassawango Creek Preserve to work on the next phase of his service learning project.
