TREE PLANTING: Students Help Restore Park
About 100 students from Eldora learned a value lesson outside of the classroom Wednesday. The student volunteers helped plant trees that will restore Pine Lake State Park. It was heavily damaged back in August of 2009. That’s when Eldora was hit by a strong storm that dropped softball size hail and had winds of up to 100-miles per hour. Damage to the trees and building of the parks was estimated at $300,000.
