The girl in this photo is a student who participated in our Restoration Ecology for Young Students (REYS) program. As part of the community service component of REYS, she is working to restore a degraded habitat at a library near her school. She has learned about ecosystems and the importance of native plants. She has been inspired to make a positive impact on her community. *This* is at the core of Au Sable’s mission. We love doing this work!
