Helping out

Over a dozen volunteers braved the cold weather Saturday morning to help Columbiana County Park District and Green Forests Work in the reforesting of Hellbender Bluff Park in East Liverpool. Among the helpers were Mellicent and Dominique Costarella. Some benefits of reforestation are to reduce flash flooding, carbon sequestration, increase pollen source for honeybees and rebuilding of soil horizons. Columbiana County Park District has several summer events scheduled that are free for the public to attend. Visit or call 424-9078 for more information.
