Minot High School seniors Brandon Christman and Allison Rabe saw an opportunity to learn from the 2011 Souris River flood. "It was a terrible event and I am glad that we could take something positive from it and now we can show other people what trees to plant, what kind, and how tall you want them to be so we can mitigate damage in the future."  North Dakota Geographic Alliance member Joe Super collaborated with a Minot State University professor to provide the students some guidance.  They presented their work at an International Junior Forest Contest in St. Petersburg in September.
