Students from the Howard School involved in the Environmental Connections project work Thursday with staff and volunteers from the Lookout Mountain Conservancy to restore a half-acre of land that is a steep kudzu- and trash-covered ravine that drains to Chattanooga Creek and the Tennessee River. The students worked at the John C. Wilson Park on Cummings Highway. Robyn Carlton, CEO of the conservancy, said Thursday was the eighth time the students have made a trip to the property.
