Mulching Trees for Earth Day

Maplewood Earth Day Mulching Project

Maplewood students celebrated Earth Day by doing a scavenger hunt and exploring our green schoolyard. See if you can find these some of features the next time you’re on our campus – our greenhouse, 3 sisters garden, mindfulness path, and outdoor learning areas.

About 80 Maplewood students also participated in an Earth Day service project mulching trees around campus. They learned about how mulch helps nourish trees, conserve water, and improve soil, and made a serious dent in the mulch pile! Huge thanks to Ms. Ward, Mr. Castañon, Ms. Garcia, and Ms. Metcalf’s students for their hard work, and to the Austin Parks Foundation for loaning us shovels and mulch sleds!
