Middle Schoolers Clean Up, Restore Stephen Decatur Park

Posted: Updated:

BERLIN, Md. - Stephen Decatur Park might look a little different this year thanks to the hard work of dedicated 7th graders at the Middle School.

47 ABC caught up with the kids Thursday afternoon planting a new garden, conducting water quality tests, building birdhouses and re-surfacing the nature trail.

It's a lot of work, which took the class an entire year to complete.

"A lot of things were overgrown and dirty and we just wanted to clean it up," said 7th grader Sofie Emm.

"I'm really proud because most [of my classmates] like to fool around in class sometimes and now they really came out and worked together as a team," said 7th graders Ally Jones.

School officials say 180 students were part of this extensive community service project.
