Rochester, N.Y. - Students from Henry Hudson School #28 worked on planting new life at High Falls Tuesday morning.
They planted new oak and maple trees, as well as lilac bushes and various other flowers near RG&E’s Hydro-Generation station.
Fourth-grader Emani Jackson helped with the project.
"I’m learning that it's good to help the environment and how to plant trees," Emani said.
Teacher Lori Antonio organized the event, who hoped to show her students that what they do in the community matters, even if it is a school project.
"This is a culmination of a whole year's worth of work," she says, "we're gonna plant these and hope for the habitat to come and find shelter here."
This was the second year of planting for Antonio.
The children prepared for this day by learning the life cycles of both plants and animals over the last year.
