16-year-old stages tree-planting to help counter pollution

first_imgSTUDIO CITY – It’s not every 16-year-old who claims “Greenopia – The Urban Dweller’s Guide to Green Living” as one of her favorite books. But then Jennifer Rubiello isn’t a typical 16-year-old. As part of a Girl Scout project, Rubiello organized one of the largest tree-planting drives in the San Fernando Valley last month. With the nonprofit organization TreePeople to lend support, nearly 170 volunteers helped plant 44 cottonwoods and large-leaf maples around the Sepulveda Basin Wildlife Refuge. “You start with yourself and you go little by little,” she said.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

The film motivated me to do something.” For her efforts she earned the Girl Scout Gold Award, the highest Scouting achievement for girls ages 14-18. Rubiello is part of Senior Girl Scout Troop Morning Star, based in Sherman Oaks, and is a junior at Cleveland High School. Friends from school, the Girl Scouts and those within the community planted all those trees. Local stores donated snacks for the volunteers. “One of my major concerns is that, when people realize how big the problem of global warming is, they think they can’t do anything about it,” Rubiello said. “That is so disappointing to me, because something can be done when it is done in a collective.” And she has some advice for those who want to help clean the environment. last_img
