The Corps

For the last year my brother-in-law, Shawn, has been working for the Conservation Corps.  One evening he took us to a site he where did some work.

At this particular site the Corps, along with community volunteers, reclaimed a stream that had been buried underground, cleared out invasive plant species and planted native ones.

 The landscaping is still young, but with a little vision you can tell that it will be gorgeous when it matures.

 Shawn showed the kids around, telling them about native vs. invasive plants.  He showed them the work he had done and explained its benefits.

He's such a fun uncle!

 Craig and I loved seeing his work and are so proud of his efforts to make our world a better place.
