Trees Keep Soccer Balls Out Of Field








A new line of trees across the east end of Woodland Park will not only provide a windbreak and visual screen from the adjacent field, it will also keep errant soccer balls from becoming lost in the crops. It was the idea of Ella Weaver, left, an AHS senior who proposed the project and helped with the planting. She said she will apply the hours she spent toward her National Honor Society requirements. AHS students helped with the project, Friday, Sept. 7. Above: Cory Rocha, Koltin Zimmerman, Brodie Ranzau, and Aaron Piokowski, from left, rake out mulch around the trees. All are juniors except for Ranzau, who is a senior. Mike Weaver, of the United States Department of Agriculture, Natural Resources Conservation Service, coordinated the program using two grant programs to fund the project. He is Ella's father.– photo by David Pugh
