TUCSON, Ariz. -- It was a field trip of sorts for some Amphi High Schoolers.

A group of students has been helping clean up the Balboa Heights Park near Grant and First Avenue for the last eight months as part of the Adopt-A-Park program.

Wednesday they were honored for their efforts.

"If we didnt clean up the park it would be all trash and all that other things," said Amphi High School student Samantha George.

This is the 248th clean up project for the Adopt-A-Park project.
