Animal Heroes

Have you ever wondered or cared about the impacts of humans on wild animals and the environment? This fall we will take a look at human actions that have helped wild animals, and we’ll find places and things that can cause harm. As a group, we will brainstorm ideas for conservation projects and other actions that will help wildlife, and carry out one or more of our ideas. We might help restore populations of salamanders or turtles along their migratory routes, and possibly help raise, tag, or track sensitive populations of local creatures. Who knows what our group might come up with! We’ll follow the Service Learning Model as closely as we can, within the time constraints.
