This Saturday, February 1st, we will need some extra help. It should be great working weather and a great way to shed adrenaline buildup preceding the Seahawks victory!
10:00 AM - 2:00 PM
The grill is hot!
We have all tools, gloves, food and beverage.
Woodinville Montessori eighth graders walked to North Creek Forest last week.
Team 1 attended a class taught by "Ranger Cathy" (Cathy Febrache-Garrand) a retired JHS science teacher, where they discovered the inner working of trees.
Team 2 worked under the guidance of UW Restoration Ecology Network students to dig up the rhizomes of invasive Himalayan blackberries on this years restoration site. It's pretty cool to see these kids help UW seniors with their project and get instruction form team members.
Team 3 went on a short hike to see the effects of surface water on landscape. They saw the aftermath of a mini flood area where a tiny year around stream ejected silt in a fan pattern 30' wide. After that we had an "investigation" to discover how it happened.
They also saw stages of forest succession, the amphibian habitat research area and historical water management practices (the old cistern).
Teams rotated through each station getting a forest tour, education and hands on experience.
Thank you Woodinville Montessori eighth grade!
