Spring Service Projects and Raft Trips for Kids

Students from Freedom Prep Academy, Kirby High School, Kate Bond Middle School, and Memphis University School have all worked on habitat restoration projects under WRC's FedEx Five Star Grant.  Most students continued work at the Lucius Burch trailhead area, clearing privet and preparing beds for native plants.  They also rotated through a variety of instructional stations on environmental topics such as the watershed model presented by Clean Memphis.

Soulsville Charter School and Winridge Elementary School sent students to participate in this year's IP EcoChallenge raft trips down the last mile of the Ghost River section.  Fortunately, the weather cooperated on both trips, one on May 1st and one on May 18th, and both students and staff had a wonderful and memorable day!
