Allegany High School ninth-graders, Tristan Muir, Darick Kerns, Hunter Wilhelm and Maddie Leighty plant a tree at Cumberland’s Jaycee Field on Wednesday. County students are planting about 200 trees in response to the state’s Stream Restoration Challenge, which seeks to establish 1,000 acres of forested stream buffers by 2015. The buffers help keep stormwater runoff and sediment from entering waterways and eventually the Chesapeake Bay. Allegany County students are among more than 13,000 students participating in the challenge statewide, with an overall goal to plant 1,000 trees.
