ROSCOMMON, Mich. (AP) - More than 120 Detroit high school students are visiting the northern Lower Peninsula to learn more about sustainable forest management in Michigan.

The students are employed by nonprofit The Greening of Detroit for the summer to clean up parks and water and maintain trees in Detroit.

The 3-day trip is scheduled to wrap up Wednesday and includes a tour of Hartwick Pines State Park in Grayling and a lumber mill. The Michigan Department of Natural Resources is partnering with the Michigan Association of Timberman and others to host students.

Students were to stay at the Ralph A. MacMullan Conference Center in Roscommon, where presentations on natural resources careers were planned.
