We will create a sanctuary in the wooded area just behind our school. Again our goal is to create habitat that will provide shelter, food, and water to the animals that inhabit this area. Our students will be assisting with habitat preparation, building of shelter, food/water stations for various animals, and create a viewing area a short distance from the sanctuary for viewing and studying local wildlife. We are using recycled wood for most of this project, along with recycled materials as much as possible.
