KULPMONT — The planting of dozens of saplings along Quaker Run at the Veterans Memorial Sports Complex Thursday afternoon concluded an environmental field trip.

Our Lady of Lourdes Regional sixth-grade students as well as Mount Carmel Area High School students enrolled in biology II and environmental science courses also visited the Roaring Creek Tract of the Weiser State Forest to observe macroinvertebrates and learn the importance of riparian buffers, a natural vegetation zone that protects a waterway.
