Students improve Drigon Dog Park

Submitted By Rick LaForce

American High School students from Fremont volunteered at the Drigon Dog Park (Union City) on December 14, 2013. Student volunteers planted 60 trees in a wood chipped area. This area was once 35,000 square feet of underutilized lawn area that required large amounts of water to maintain. The newly planted area now uses bubblers to water the trees. Each tree needs about 10 gallons per week which equates to 600 gallons per week during the growing season compared to the thousands of gallons the lawn needed weekly.
