Calvin Collander digs into a special project as he works to become an Eagle Scout.
With friends and members of the Honors Biology program at Sehome High School, over 200 native plants were planted on a steep hillside in Fairhaven Park at the north end of the Chuckanut Range.
Good job Calvin! You and your father Magnus have a right to be proud of what you are accomplishing.
