Former Rachel Carson Environmental Middle School student Chloe, now a SOLVE Stream Team Captain, is also part of her high school’s environmental club. When she joined, of course she was excited about West View High School’s recycling program, but she wanted to see more. “We don’t go outside!” And the remedy…. an after school Green Team!
Last week, the group (small, but mighty!) got to see the Willow Creek site that current Rachel Carson students have been working at, removing blackberry, planting native trees and shrubs as well as adding live willow stakes — all create bio-diverse habitat, strengthen the stream bank, help filter runoff better, and create shade for the creek. The group planted a few plants and took a tour!
Thank you, Chloe and your group for offering to help out!!! You rock!
