School without racism

Unfortunately we got about 7 or 8 selfies against racism... That is not enough in a school with more than 1000 students. But this year we will try it again - doing more publicity before and much more about it afterwards. I think not everyone got the message because the idea for such a contest came up very late during the school year. So we won't give up and try it again in cooperation with our "homemade" broadcasting station organized by pupils. Letztendlich erhielten wir etwa 7 oder 8 Selfies gegen Rassismus... Nicht genug bei einer Schule mit mehr als 1000 Schülern.

Solitary Bee Hotels

We met at the Crane Trust Nature and Visitor Center to learn about native bees and their importance to the prairie from graduate research assistants from UNL department of entomology. Erin Ingram and Louise Lynch are both working on their PHDs. They then helped the Roots and Shoots group create solitary nesting domiciles to attract native bees. Students took them home to help promote native solitary bees with plants in their own areas.
