Creatures of Habitat - Students Taking Action
- Created: Tuesday, 24 April 2012 16:06
Todd and Peter had the pleasure of contributing to an annual childrens' stewardship event coordinated by Peninsula Streams known as Creatures of Habitat. Each year they set up an activity filled day at Royal Oak Middle School (ROMS) and others, focusing on ecosystem restoration on their school property. Mulching, weeding, invasive plant removal and garbage clean up were all a part of this fun filled day that saw upwards of 300 different students get outside to care for and improve their school grounds. It was really inspirational to see middle school children working hard to ensure that their school's streams and meadows would become better habitat for fish and wildlife. ROMS students led by Angus Stewart have been restoring their Garry Oak Meadow and an onsite tributary of the salmon bearing Colquitz Creek through HAT's Green Spots Program since 2008. For some students it was their third year of attacking blackberry. We look forward to helping out with these type of events more in the future and they will continue to inspire us to always push the limits with our own projects.
