OGDEN, Utah – Weber State University students planted trees, put up no-idling signs and performed other work as part of a national day of service Saturday.
The students participated in the national Make A Difference Day, and the local service projects were organized by the school’s Center for Community Engaged Learning, who chose to focus on clean air.
Some students fixed up the university’s community garden while others planted trees at Antelope Island. Mike Moon is the assistant director for the Center for Community Engaged Learning, and he said it was a valuable experience.
“This is very important for our community and our students,” he said. “Our students are able to really understand the larger picture and how they’re part of a larger community, how they can make an impact.”
