I am looking forward to today's adventure to Sacagawea Park. Some 10 years ago, I facilitated a Service Learning class at our New Horizon Alternate school. We would ride bikes to Sacagawea and other Greenway points to brainstorm and implement improvements in coordination with several community organizers. We helped make Sacagawea more accessible by reseeding portions of the retention burm, transplant wetlands plants, and remove debris from the river. This was a great way to connect the kids with their community and raise awareness of the importance of natural places. It was awesome earlier this week when I saw one of my former students at Edson Fichter Park. He had brought his wife and two children to the pond for a morning of fishing!
