Elementary and High School students visited the Rose Run stream this week to learn about the importance of soil, native species and to help clean up the stream. This event was sponsored by the City of New Albany with assistance from Franklin County Soil and Water. The Rose Run is currently the focus of a grant to help enhance the area for our community.
Student classes in grades 4 and 5 (Cofer, Barnes, Ellis, Gundlach, Hughes, Hast, Kowis, Labuhn, Derrow, Heiing) and Chad Schwinnen’s HS Environmental class volunteered to come out and support the project. They enjoyed learning in Franklin County Soil and Water’s new Soil Tunnel and the put on gloves to help clean up the area and explore the beautiful stream.
