McGinnis Woods has a long standing partnership with Keep Forsyth County Beautiful.
Through the years we have partnered with them to do clean-up projects, sample water in our creek, contribute to frog research and learn about water, erosion and run off. They have also contributed to our Nature Explore Outdoor Classroom curriculum.
Students Learn About Water Pollution
On Tuesday, September 17, Ms. Apryl from Keep Forsyth County Beautiful visited our students in Kindergarten – 8th grade and focused her lessons on the impact of water pollution. She completed hands on activities with each of the age groups in mind and made sure to keep all of the students actively engaged.
Many of the students simulated the process that a stream would go through from being a pristine animal habitat to a polluted environment complete with toxic runoff and trash pollutants downstream.
Our 2nd graders used the enviroscape to explore water runoff in communities. The students were reminded just how important it is for us to protect our natural resources and to do our part to clean up trash and always dispose of it properly.
We are looking forward to our future visits with Ms. Apryl, as we work with KFCB to educate our students to be great stewards of our world.
