Service Learning Opportunity at ECHHS Improving the Campus Landscape to Support Student Learning

posted Apr 18, 2016, 5:37 AM by Ashley McBride   [ updated Apr 22, 2016, 5:46 AM ]
The environmental science teachers and students of East Chapel Hill High School are implementing an environmental restoration project. The Improving Campus Landscape to Support Student Learning initiative was funded by the Public School Foundation through the Strowd Roses Grant Program and The Burt’s Bees Greater Good Foundation.

Do you need service learning hours, enjoy working outside, or want to learn more about ecology? Volunteers are needed for Dig-in days on April 23 and April 30 from 9am-12pm. Sign up to participate HERE. Events are open to the entire ECHHS community, and any level of participation is encouraged. You can work for part of an event, the entire event, or just stop by to observe and learn about environmental science on campus.   

Dig-in day events will take place behind ECHHS between the football field and the campus pond. Volunteers will help construct high quality habitat for pollinators by planting species native to North Carolina. No experience necessary, but bring a water bottle, and wear closed toed shoes and clothes that can get dirty.

Need more information? Interested in finding out more about what you can do to support environmental science at ECHHS? Contact a project leader: Mr. Kabay, ekabay@chccs.k12.nc.us or Mr. Schnitzer, dschnitzer@chccs.k12.nc.us.
