I, much to my surprise had a heads up about a school event from Henry, my son. STRAW or Students and Teachers Restoring a Watershed have been working for the past nine years on the creek behind Miller Creek Middle School. I tagged along with his science class this past Friday and did a bit of both digging and documenting. There are strict school rules regarding the posting of pictures of students, every parent has to sign a release so I feel obligated to use images that feature my one and only so I won’t end up in the principal’s office. But, I can truthfully say that all the kids were busy pulling out non native species, tagging native ones and doing some planting.
Here’s a link the The Bay Institute’s website, http://www.bay.org/ from there click on watershed education.
