Kids in Action - April 2016
Earth Day in the Parks
Marshall North Elementary School, Marshall
Thousands of native prairie plants were added to the prairie restoration at Lincoln Trail State Park in Marshall during Earth Day in the Parks 2015 from the Illinois Department of Natural Resources (IDNR). One hundred sixth grade students, their teachers and volunteers from Marshall North Elementary School were responsible for this work. The students learned that they can make a positive difference in their world and have fun while doing so. The IDNR and Illinois Wildlife Preservation Fund provided funding for this event.
