On Saturday, November 14, 2020 nine members of the Canyon Crest Academy Junior Optimist International Club of San Diego, California helped “Green the Environment” in an activity that was accomplished safely and yet with shared comradery. The Junior Optimists joined San Diego County Park Rangers in the planting of trees in the County’s Los Penasquitos Canyon Preserve. The Club members split up into two groups and with Park Rangers each group spent the morning planting trees along the Preserve’s trails. Even through the masks, the smiles of accomplishment of their contribution to the planet and its inhabitants, can be felt, even if not seen. Creative ways to participate in constructive community service activities are being found by the Junior Optimists even in these most challenging times.
