More than 250 area high school students have signed up for the Youth Tree Team Challenge Day at the KIB headquarters (1029 Fletcher Ave.) on Saturday, March 3. Youth will compete in obstacles that test their willingness to work hard and get their hands dirty—activities will vary from water bucket slaloms, mulch races, calisthenics, and much more. They will be competing for 65 coveted spots on the 2012 team—with many youth returning from year to year.
The KIB Youth Tree Team is a paid 9-week summer program that employs Indianapolis high school students and young adults to preserve and maintain the trees that are planted through KIB’s NeighborWoods program—an initiative to plant 100,000 trees in Marion County.
