Planting Seeds for Change: Earth Day at the Azrou Center
By Bridget Quinn
Bridget Quinn (Semester of Service in Morocco) collaborated with her colleagues at Al Akhawayn University and the Azrou Center to organize an Earth Day celebration for her students! Check out these fantastic photos from the event:
Preparing for Earth Day at the Azrou Center! Students were tasked with cleaning up a local park, and planting new trees.
Students started by pulling weeds and cleaning up the park.
Once the park was clean, Azrou students began planting new trees!
Digging and planting.
