Deer Park: more than meets the eye!

A small group of thoughtful people could change the world. Indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has. ” ~ Margaret Mead 

A small but mighty group from Deer Park Academy has taken on stewarding Willow Creek.  This one-student, two-teacher team has been removing invasive blackberry and planting native plants this fall, and spending some good one-on-one time with the creek. learning about the importance of native plants and thinking about what our role as a society is in restoring our waterways.  While environmental issues sometimes seem overwheling, like nothing we do can reverse what has been done.  But that’s not true!  Every little bit we do adds up and is important.  The actions of one person matter!

This week, they planted over 20 Pacific Ninebark and Red Osier Dogwood near the creek!  Thank you for your dedication to not just SOLVE, but to Willow Creek!
