Work Continues Along the White River & Remote Learning Resources

Posted on February 26, 2021 at 3:16 PM by Allan Warren

After a bit of a hiatus (what with the pandemic and all), we picked back up with our partnership with Glacier Middle School. We put together some blackberry-clearing work parties with a small but dedicated group of teachers and students this fall and winter. We also benefitted from the efforts of an AmeriCorps crew during their rotation with Pierce Conservation District. Once we made a dent in the blackberry patches, we set our sights on putting some native plants in the ground in February. These will help improve habitat along the White River, as well as serving as an outdoor learning opportunity for the school and community. There’s plenty of work still to be done but it’s great to see some progress!

We’re glad to see kids returning to school safely, and we can’t wait to resume class visits and field trips when the time comes. In the meantime, we’ve been adding to our remote learning resources. You can watch a stop-motion stormwater video, look at soil organisms up close, and explore other environmental science activities. Check out our Environmental Education at Home page for these and others to help meet your remote learning needs.

With so much distance learning going on, our EE team wants to support teachers and learners who are looking for resources. We have virtual activities, videos, and other resources to support environmental science learning for a variety of grades. To get an idea of what we can offer, visit our “Environmental Education at Home” page here: https://piercecd.org/522/Environmental-Education-at-Home.

We celebrated the return of local salmon virtually this year, with videos and activities fromFish Mask partners throughout the watershed. We compiled these on our website to make them easy for you to check out. Until we can gather again and celebrate Salmon Homecoming together, use these fun activities to learn more about them, their journey, and the role we play in their story.
