Thank you to Mrs. Lawson’s class, as well as others, for Skyping with me today! I truly appreciate it. Mrs. Lawson’s class is a kindergarten class at Gray’s Creek Elementary in North Carolina. The students asked about the mouse traps we use here during our expedition, the types of animals we have seen, and they wanted to know specifically about beavers and snakes. We also talked about the importance of animal poop! While this may seem strange, animal poop can actually tell scientists a lot about the animals in the area. The students even asked about Canadian currency. It was great to Skype with them and let them actually see Nova Scotia. Thank you to Mrs. Lawson, her students, and the other teachers for making this possible.
I would also like to thank the funder who made this trip possible for me. A huge thank you goes to the Henry Greenwalt Earthwatch Educator Fellowship for funding this expedition. I would not have been able to participate without this, nor could I bring exciting and valuable information to the students at my school, as well as the community.
As the Lorax says, “Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It’s not.” Please help us help the environment.
