Hundreds of students will replant trees this weekend
The wildfires of 2011 were the most damaging in state history, especially in Bastrop County. Now hundreds of Aggie students are replanting trees.
Texas A&M's Lane Stephenson says a campus environmental group called 'Replant' is spearheading the effort.
"This project over at Bastrop is tailor made for them because they're gonna be going over about 800 strong in four different sessions."
It starts Saturday when students bus to Bastrop State Park.
"Parks and Wildlife; we'll be working with them and planting about 30,000 seedlings."
Stephenson says this is typical of Aggie core values and the students' commitment to service, leadership and respect.
