Editor, My name is Aaliyah. I’m a 9-year-old girl who goes to Calyx Community Arts School, which is located at South Whidbey State Park. We take care of the park and walk the trails almost every day. We monitor the trails in case a tree falls or a bridge is broken or there is a limb blocking the path, and then we report it to the ranger. At Calyx, we don’t go on the trails when it’s very windy.
