Working with a nonprofit organization called Common Ground Relief, the students planted hardy, fast-growing native plants and removed invasive species in coastal areas imperiled by hurricanes, development and engineering projects that have eroded land and endangered wildlife. They planted thousands of Cypress trees, visited the levy that broke during Hurricane Katrina, and even rescued an abandoned dog that was starving in the wetlands.
