Two separate high school courses – botany and zoology – were developed to do initial biodiversity surveys of the Godfrey Lee school district.
Fostering Lifelong Stewardship
Students were grateful to get a chance to spend time outdoors and in their community. They spent a lot of time immersed in the Plaster Creek environment – directly sampling, collecting/identifying specimens, learning about the history of this area, and releasing Chinook salmon that were raised in our classroom into this creek.
