D&E students plant trees

April 25, 2014
The Inter-Mountain
Davis & Elkins College students Jonathan Belachew, a freshman from Washington, D.C., left, and Zachary Schmucker, a senior from Latrobe, Pa., plant a red spruce seedling at Canaan Valley National Wildlife Refuge. The two are among a group of students who assisted the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service in planting 5,500 red spruce seedlings in an effort to reconnect fragmented habitat for rare and uncommon high elevation species such as the northern flying squirrel, northern goshawk and Cheat Mountain salamander. Sponsored by the D&E Biology and Environmental Science Department, the students made up the largest group of volunteers in this year’s project. Davis & Elkins groups have participated in the project for 10 years and have planted more than 50,000 trees. (Submitted photo)
