Grow it Forward

Fourth-grade students at OLL participate in a micro-nursery program called Grow It Forward. Started by a retired NOAA scientist, Jim Wright. Grow it Forward encourages people to nurture 100 native trees to be used in salmon habitat restoration.
 
Two years ago, we adopted 100 western hemlocks right at the beginning of the COVID pandemic, and last year an additional 100 Douglas fir trees. In January, the Douglas firs went to the Swamp Creek restoration area.  The western hemlocks need more time to grow.
