Wild Schools at Work
Check out this awesome video from Shaw TV of students from Margret Jenkins Elementary School (École Élémentaire Margaret Jenkins) removing gorse and other invasive plants from Trafalgar Park in Victoria. Margaret Jenkins is part of HCTF Education’s Wild Schools Program, a 3-year program providing teachers and students of K-8 schools with free resources, training and support for environmental learning and outdoor field experiences in their communities. In the third year of the program, school receive $500 towards a stewardship project, which allowed Margaret Jenkins to purchase gloves and other supplies necessary for the students to participate in this hands-on conservation project. Hats off to students and staff for a job well done!
