FMCSD Partners with Community

Tree planting 2

A long view of the 64 trees that were delivered by Ritter’s Garden Center to the PORT Trail located on the FMMS property earlier today.  A grant from Alliant Energy purchased the trees.  The staff from Trees Forever educated about 40 FMMS student council members and other volunteers who planted all the trees along the PORT trail.  Thanks to PORT, Scott’s Company for the volunteers and planting supplies as well as Larry Driscoll and the City of Fort Madison for site preparation.  #TEAMWORK!
