The ECRCHS Sustainability event held on Saturday, 10/12 was a tremendous success. Humanitas Students teamed up with ECR Athletics to improve the water retention of the tree planters within and around our campus. Throughout the day, each planter was cleared of debris, weeded, layered with cardboard, and covered with mulch donated by the Department of Urban Forestry. Informally dubbed “Operation Woodchip”, this massive undertaking utilized nearly 250 students and involved approximately 5,000 cubic feet of tree mulch.
In addition to the feelings of pride and ownership associated with this undertaking, participating students received a custom event t-shirt and an exclusive stainless steel refillable water container for their efforts. Special thanks to all of our students who were involved.
