Rockin’ out at Karper Creek

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Students from Mountain View Middle School were welcomed back to ‘Karper Creek’ this afternoon with some rockin’ tunes from a nearby house.  Even though students have been gone for winter break, they were still able to recall all the reasons we are working as a class to restore native trees and shrubs to the creek – To shade the stream, provide a root structure to stabilize eroding banks, and to provide habitat for all the wildlife that calls this creek home.

Students planted 80 native trees and shrubs, removed some HUGE blackberry roots and wrote some awesome reflections about their work that will be submitted to Honoring Our River.

The feelings of water on your feet in the hot summer,

Cooling and cleaning away all your impurities.

Stress free place with on one to tell you you’re wrong or right.

A river is a beauty to see

Where you are wild and absolutely free!

– Nicole, Grade 7, Mountain View Middle School

The River

The calmness of the river

Love of the quiet

The river is so peaceful

– Noah, Grade 7, Mountain View Middle School

Streams are where things are explored

Wonders have been found

Imagination thrives here

-Jeremy, Grade 7, Mountain View Middle School

A river is gorgeous

A river is stress free

A river is gorgeous

For me and you to see, happy

-Nicole, Grade 7 Mountain View Middle School

Streams are mysterious, full of wonder, exciting, adventurous, and most of all give life.
