Manual labor of love
Under the supervision of John Fucik, members of the Port Aransas High School Key Club installed new plants along the entry to the Joan and Scott Holt Paradise Pond on Saturday, Oct. 17. The students volunteered to replant the area, from which Brazilian pepper trees were removed under a grant from the Texas Birding Classic award in 2008. Lily Cartwright, from left, Clark Wilson, Claire Jones, adult volunteer Lyndon Holcomb, Mamta Patel, Namni Sayed and Hannah Ferguson Johns are hard at work replanting the area. The Key Club is sponsored by the Kiwanis Club of Port Aransas.
