200 More Trees!

Form a line, pass a tree:

Today we planted 200 more saplings up at the Lao Lao Revegetation Site. 66 local and visiting Boy Scouts helped us with the planting. The visiting Boy Scouts are from the Trapper Trails Council in Utah. They are hosting a Boy Scout camp near Lao Lao Bay to help us resurrect the Boy Scout Program on Saipan.

We can't thank them enough for their leadership and their service.

We also need to thank Rep. Cinta Kaipat for donating cups and for coordinating with PSS to get the boys transportation, PSS and Dr. David M. Borja for donating a school bus on less than 24 hours notice, CNMI Forestry for donating 200 saplings, and Coastal Resources Management for donating shovels, picks, and water.

Finally, we need to thank Boy Scout Troup 913, the Trapper Trails Council Boy Scouts, and the staff members of CRM, CNMI Forestry, and Rep. Cinta Kaipat's office for providing the volunteer labor.

Here are a few more pictures:
