COLORADO SPRINGS -

Students from Midland, North and Palmer High Schools learned a lesson Thursday in serving their community. 

The group grabbed their gloves and helped get South Shooks Run Park in Colorado Springs back into tip-top shape. 

In the classroom they were taught about envirnmental impacts, but teachers say it's really all about something bigger.

"We're part of a bigger community and that nothing gets done in the community unless it's for individuals and teams of individuals and collaboration and taking the time to serve," said Palmer HS teacher Hillary Hienton.


"It's definitely more fun than classroom work, I'll say that. It feels good, kinda just to volunteer and like help out because other people won't and they'll just littler and stuff like that, it feels good to help," said Palmer HS student Christian Murillo.

To keep the environmental impacts to a minimum, students rode their bikes to the park.
