Hi All, As you know, we have worked with several different teachers and student groups from the New Roots Charter School on our conservation projects down at Renwick Woods and Lighthouse Point over the last 4 years. We now have the opportunity to engage the entire New Roots school population in late September. Details are still being worked out, but we likely will have 40-50 students one day and another 40-50 the next day sometime around Tuesday September 27 to Thursday the 29th.
We will need folks to help who can talk to kids about birds and bird ID, migration, conservation, and of course, some folks who can help guide kids on our physical conservation activities. Please let me know if you can help out in any way (likely 10-3 or so on the days of activity). This is a pretty big deal as community outreach goes, and maybe we can encourage some news coverage of it to share with the broader community. Thanks in advance. Jody Jody W.
