Project World Asks for Help
On Wednesday, March 3, interns and three of the students from
Project World addressed the Sanborn faculty about our wetlands.
Thanks to the information presented by Sondra
Perry, Tom Wilhelm, and Jenn Buteau, the faculty learned about goals that
the Project World class has for making the wetlands an efficient outdoor
classroom, like a boardwalk, a gate, and benches. They were also
shown some of the academic projects that have been done, including some
photos taken in the wetland, a map students made of the wetland, and the
proposed path through it.
After that, it was the interns' turn.
They asked the faculty for assistance with some of the major projects in
the wetlands. Some of the assistance included help with cleaning
up thrash, constructing the boardwalk, and writing brochures. This
way, the whole school would have more ownership of the wetlands, instead
of just the Project World class.
The outcome was great. Many of the teachers
signed up to help out. There were a variety of interests, including
trash pick up, construction, labor, writing, and finally translating brochures.
All of the interest is encouraging. The
Project World class, with the help of the school, hope to exceed their
goals. Thanks to all of those people who volunteered to help, Sanborn's
very own outdoor classroom is in the making.
