It's the last day of school for the animals and they have each prepared a special presentation on things they can to do help conserve. Rachel Raccoon told how she planted many different kinds of trees around the school yard. Some of the trees provided shade while others produced fruit and nuts for others to eat. Sammy Skunk planted a small garden with a variety of native plants. Native plants are used to the climate in the area and require less care other plants and provide wildlife habitats for the creatures who live in the area. The students continued to share different techniques that can be used to conserve water and electricity as well as how recycling cuts down on waste that goes into landfills. The class is excited about learning to be green and sharing their knowledge with others.
