Mills Lawn third-grader Dane Beal is on a quest to raise funds for new trees for the school's grounds.

Mills Lawn first-grader Dane Beal is on a quest to raise funds for new trees for the school's grounds.

Mills Lawn student raises money to plant trees

Seven-year-old Mills Lawn student Dane Beal is currently raising money to buy new trees for the Mills Lawn Elementary School grounds. The new trees will replace the ash trees that were cut down after they were damaged by the emerald ash borer. For the full story on Dane’s project, watch the video below. To donate to the cause, send donations to the YS Tree Committee at P.O. Box 122, indicating that the funds benefit Mills Lawn.

To learn more about how the emerald ash borer has affected Yellow Springs, and how some of the village’s lost ashes have found a second life, read Megan Bachman’s 2012 story here.

Correction: the video’s text mistakenly refers to Dane as a third-grader; he’s actually in first grade. Apologies to Dane!
