(WEAU) - Some students got to go on a picnic on this perfect day, while also getting in some work at a local park.
Six years ago, Meadowview Elementary in Eau Claire adopted Fairfax Park. Since then, student and staff have helped keep it clean and have also planted trees and worked on other projects. So Friday afternoon, all the students and staff went to the park to have a picnic and help clean up a little bit as well.
Partnership Coordinator Sue Lindstedt told us the students "feel like it is their park. There's a sign about it being their park, so it is their park."
Lindstedt says they usually go out and clean the park around Earth Day, but this spring's snow pushed back the outing until Friday.
