Mountain Laurel Montessori students battle invasive plants
As part of their twice annual war against invasive plant species, students from Mountain Laurel Montessori have focused their efforts along the Appalachian Trail, removing autumn olive, an attractive plant that still is a serious danger to Virginia's native plant populations.
Each fall and spring fifth and sixth graders from the school battle alongside volunteers from the National Park Service to help eradicate the invasive species.
