Student Service Projects Begin Today

This afternoon the SCORES staff is going to two schools to watch them serve others. Jake and Heather will be going to West Seattle to the West Duwamish Greenbelt, Seattle’s largest remaining forest, to work with the Maple girls team as they clear the area of invasive species and even plant some new native species. The Maple ladies have already put together a butterfly garden at their school, fitting because the school's mascot is the Monarch Butterfly. This will be their first time doing restoration, but they'll be back at it on May 12th.

They will be working with the Nature Consortium, a Seattle non-profit.

The office VISTAs will be going to watch Highland Park, also over in West Seattle, to accompany the girls team's visit to the Fleming Home, an assisted living facility. We're going to walk with the students over to the Home and then the students will spend some time with the people living there. The poets already wrote letters to them and now will get to meet them.

We'll have pictures to update tomorrow for both events.
