South Sioux City, Neb., continues to revamp its riverfront area.
On Saturday, they got some help from local high school students. Instead of sleeping in, they were up early planting trees and sprucing up the shoreline at Scenic Park.
Officials hope the planting project leaves a lasting impression on both the park and the planters.
"Kids this age, they actually get to see these trees grow up and actually become part of their lives, and they can look back and say I planted that tree, you know, and that's kind of important," said Gene Moffitt, the city's park director.
On the day, 140 trees were planted, including oaks, hackberries and magnolias. With a second chance to plant, South Sioux is looking to diversify the types of tree along the riverfront.
