Writing from Willow Creek

Some of Rachel Carson Environmental Middle School’s sixth-graders joined us at Willow Creek this week; they continued installing beaver caging to protect our new plants and trees as well as bioengineering with dogwood, spirea and willow stakes harvested from SOLV sites. 

Students were able to sit down in the sunshine as they did their writing reflections on Willow Creek for submission into Honoring Our Rivers.  Here are some examples of what the students wrote:

Sometimes sun, sometimes rain

Either way, we all gain

Removing reed canary grass

Is what we do as the years pass

Removing Himalayan blackberry

I think that is very merry!

I admit there’s a lot of mud

But you’ll soon learn that it’s your bud!

Hoping that those turtles will come

Willow Creek is a place to learn from!

As I sit here

I see the steam rise

As I sit here

I see the sun glide

As I sit here

I see the plants tall and wide

As I sit here

I feel pride

Right in front of us,

A sea of reed canary grass

Let’s get rid of it.

Right in front of us,

A forest of blackberry

Let’s get rid of it.

Right in front of us,

A forest of willow trees

Let’s help keep them there.
