On April 14 and 17, the Cedar Springs Lions Club planted 400 Red and White Pine seedlings along the White Pine Trail between 16 and 18 Mile Roads. This is the area that the Lions Club maintains. A portion of the trees also went to three locations on the school grounds.
Volunteers that helped plant the trees included Cub Scout Troop 3222 and Boy Scout Troop 222. “They did a great job,” said Lions Club member Jerry VanderWal.
