Earth Day For The Mill Creek Forest

NPS/Public Domain

Earth Day is here once again, the 45th anniversary of the first celebration. 

One of the many recommended activities for the day is to plant a tree. 

That kind of work is a regular thing in the Mill Creek forest in the Del Norte Coast Redwoods State Park. 

The restoration work is meant to preserve the mighty redwoods for many years to come.  But the work does involve removing some trees, too. 

State Parks ecologist Lathrop Leonard joins us with details.
