GREEN BAY, Wis. (WFRV) – As summer break nears some local students are spending their last days in school by giving back.

500 students from Aldo Leopold Community School took part in the Aldo Day of Service.

8th graders went to the Bay Beach Wildlife Sanctuary to help remove invasive weeds.

They see the importance of removing the harmful plants.

“Aldo Leopold was an environmentalist, so we’re just helping with the environment to keep his legacy going,” said 8th grader Olivia Ashikino.

“To carry on Aldo Leopold’s legacy and to help the environment, too,” Josue Hilario said.

Students also picked up trash around the community and wrote letters to veterans.
