On May 2, Ellsworth Middle School students from Mrs. Miller's seventh grade science class continued the school forest project in its 15th year by planting 600 trees. The goal of the school district is to create a sustainable forest and wetland grasses, providing a diverse learning environment for students of all ages and grade levels to experience. The forest and grasslands have become an attractive feature for the community, with groomed trails for hiking, running, cross-country skiing and snowshoeing. These trails give an opportunity to have an enjoyable place to go during all seasons while continuing to have a connection and partnership with the district. Dave Johnson, EMS past science teacher, along with Mrs. Miller, present science teacher, work each year to manage the site using objectives as outlined by the Pierce County Forester.
