Elizabeth Jamison takes a bird’s-eye view of saving the environment one tree at a time. The Schalmont Middle School sixth-grader wrote in response to The Daily Gazette’s 2009 Capital Region Earth Day Project.
Hundreds of students from 12 middle schools offered suggestions for The Daily Gazette’s 2009 Capital Region Earth Day Project.

Thirty of the best suggestions appear today, in the newspaper’s print and online editions.
