I did this project to benefit my community and the wildlife. This project was conducted in Glenn Camp in the Angeles National Forest in CA, USA. In this project I organized a group of volunteers to remove Spanish Broom, an invasive non-native species with gigantic, snaking roots reaching 8 feet. After pulling out the Spanish Broom, we planted a pine sapling in its place. In all, we managed to pull up 88 Spanish Broom and plant 21 pine saplings. It is extremely important to take care of the area as the area is a peaceful campground and home to many wildlife. This project was especially important as these trees will make up for the ones lost in the recent fire. This project has enriched my life and inspired me to continue my work and service for the community and environment.
