Through education, and with your help, the goal is to get this documentary into every high school in the United States and all channels, so we can stop the stigma.

The Tech Trails Need Your Help!
Invasive Emerald Ash Borer have caused extensive damage to the ash tree population on the Tech Trails, leaving behind dead trees which create a hole in the canopy allowing invasive shrub species to flourish and stunt native growth. Michigan Tech has received funding through the US-Forest Service/GLRI to plant native trees in areas along ski trails with the greatest loss of ash overstory. Young red maple, northern white cedar, white pine, red-osier dogwood, yellow birch, high bush cranberry, and pussy willow trees will help reestablish the tree cover in areas once dominated by ash and preserve the beauty of the trails for future users. Student and community volunteers will be planting the young trees on September 27, 28 & 29.
Michigan Tech invites you to help preserve the beauty of the Tech Trails and give back to your community. All are welcome to assist as they are able. Stop by the Tech Trails ready to plant! No experience required! Student coordinators will be present to organize volunteers. Work will involve digging, planting, weeding, and mulching. Please dress in long pants, close-toed shoes, and bring a shovel if you are able! Gloves, water, and snacks are recommended.
