Earth Week

A local club volunteered to help our planet one seed at a time.

For Earth Week, sixth and seventh graders from Scullen Middle School’s Service Club, Scullen ROCS teamed up with the Naperville Park District to plant prairie seeds and pick up trash at Commissioners Park.

Planting prairie seeds was a simple process; scoop up the seeds, scruff up the prairie with your foot, drop the seeds and stomp them into the ground.

There were seven different kinds of prairie grass and wild flowers in the mixture.

“It’s really nice to see them get out and do something positive and see the look on their faces when they realize… Hey, I’ve just made a difference,” said Don Hughes Chairman of the Scullen Reach Out with Community Service Program. “It’s really great!”

“My family comes here a lot and it’s fun to make it prettier,” said Mary a sixth grader from Scullen Middle School.

Seeds planted by the Scullen ROCS Club will grow in the next few years.
