A beneficial day for everyone! WOLF School is a non-profit organization that provides an educational outdoor science camp to 3,500 students each year. This March, they are beginning their new role as Sanctuary Stewards by incorporating three Save Our Shores beach cleanups into 5th and 6th grade student programs at Natural Bridges State Beach. Schools from all over California are welcomed by naturalist’s from WOLF who educate the students while on their beach cleanup field trip. The students then weigh their trash to be sent to a database for public record.
These specific students came from Carmichael for a four day science camp retreat. Typhoon, one of the naturalists for WOLF, who is also a volunteer for Save Our Shores, spoke about how he wanted the students to see that they can really have a positive effect on the environment.
A quote from Save Our Shores:
“Partnering with WOLF School is a natural and exciting fit for us,” says Save Our Shores Director of Programs Rachel Kippen. “Students are engaged in conservation education throughout the whole watershed while at WOLF, and ending their week with a Save Our Shores beach cleanup is an effective culmination of the concepts the campers have learned. While both organizations benefit from this collaboration, the real benefit is seen by the students, our most promising stewards!”
