Students to Replant Trees After Fire

7-29 douglas00000001GLENDALE, Ore. –Some Oregon high school students are working to replant areas destroyed by the Douglas Complex last summer.

The Oregon Department of Forestry and Glendale High School students are meeting next Wednesday to plant seedlings on the burnt land. ODF officials say these lands help produce revenue that support education through the common school fund.

The Douglas Complex burned more than 48,000 acres. Organizers say they hope to plant 500 seedlings next week.

Anyone wanting to join in on the efforts are asked to contact the Oregon Department of Forestry.
