Green and other Girl Scouts in the park said that, despite the rain, they enjoyed planting at the park and learning about the park’s history.
“(The planting) will give you a good feeling knowing you’ve done something good,” Rhiannon Parise said.

He said a misunderstanding meant that none of what was donated could be planted in the park.
