Student Service Learning Opportunity - Weed Warrior Work Days
May 21, 2016, 9:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.

www.cityofbowie.org/weedwarriors

Volunteers are needed to help remove English ivy from Whitemarsh Park. As an invasive, non-native plant, English ivy spreads quickly and easily, and is very destructive to native ecosystems. This is an outdoor activity that requires cutting the ivy vines at eye-level and foot-level then pulling them back about two feet from the base of the tree to bag them.

To participate, please register by contacting Kristin Larson (klarson@cityofbowie.org, 301-809-3044). Tiffany Wright (Watershed Manager for the City of Bowie) or Kristin Larson (Sustainability Planner for the City of Bowie) will sign off on service learning hours for students at the event.

SSL program
We so appreciate the opportunity to share some of our service learning programming with your students and parents. Most of our projects are not student-specific, although appropriate for high school students – but we run a week-long community service camp JUST for teens that I did want to share with you in case it’s of interest. It does cost money unfortunately, due to the expenses we incur for transportation and materials, but it’s an awesome experience and way for teens to complete their SSL hours all at once. Although we are based in DC, we have a large number of teens coming from Maryland every year.

I’m attaching the post card for you to share with you– but am happy to answer absolutely any questions anyone might have.

Middle School Field Trip to DC
The middle schoolers who attended the trip to Washington DC on Thursday had a great time. We began at the Spy Museum where we were greeted as agents and got to explore different things from Russian Spies to James Bond. We continued our adventure as we navigated through DC where the students got to walk in front of the White House! We ended at Constitution Hall at the Festival of Culture and Language where we got to see kids from all around the world performing songs/dances from their native country. We saw acts from Romania, Germany, Brazil, the United States, and many more. We would like to thank all of the parents for their support and give a special shout out to our amazing parent chaperones and our amazing staff members, Ms. Walde and Ms. Rooney, who were on hand to supervise the whole time. We couldn't have pulled it off without them!
