Summer Intern learning planting Poplar seeds

Meet Josh, our summer intern! Josh is planting Hybrid Poplar cuttings, a tree which assists in removing pollutants from the soil. Our mission this summer is to help “clean up” industrial brown fields in our region, areas where industry dumped toxic chemicals into the soil. We will then replant the Poplar trees in the brown fields to restore balance in a process called phytoremediation.
