Kids and Creeks Classroom Photos

In Spring 2011, Kids & Creeks extended the Clean Creeks in the Classroom Program, in collaboration with the SWM EOP and Neighborhood Services for the City of Chico. The urban watershed program was adapted to 6th grade education standards and students participated in service learning through restoration of an urban greenway site at 9th Street and Hazel. Chico Country Day School students learned about the effects of erosion on waterways and planted native plants at the restoration site.
