Brashear Kids and g-tech held their last education lesson of 2016! Our lesson first focused on watersheds and what we can do to protect the species that live within them. Unsure of what a watershed is? See image below! A watershed is an area of land where all the water that is under it, or drains off it, collects into the same place (Eg- a river or ocean).
Next, students were placed into groups and given a species poster to decorate. Each poster came with a tactic to protect the species. For example, on the turtle poster, "Turtles need clean water; build rain gardens to protect them". Brashear Kids enjoyed decorating with ribbons, tissue, and pom-poms!

We can't wait to display these posters and further expand on the importance of conservation.
