My students need a picnic table for our Certified Wildlife Habitat area.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

I teach environmental science at the high school level. Most of my students are going to college and many of them are Advanced Learners. They are learning about the importance of preserving our precious resources.

This area provides a rewarding setting that stimulates their brains for greater focus and retention. They are motivated by the opportunity to visit the outside garden area.

The picnic table will serve as a place to have materials and allow for seating for those special needs students that may need to be handled with great care while they can also receive the same educationally rewarding opportunity.

Your contribution will help us to maintain our momentum in making our school one of the most effective. Providing such a beautiful ambiance will enhance the memories of our students for years to come, socially and certainly professionally.
