History of the Hoedown
Why a Hoedown, you might ask?  Well, first, if you've been before, you know it's TONS OF FUN!  But it's more than that. It's a full experience of connecting our children to long-time traditions and cultural history. One of the premiere dance callers in Northern California spends time during the day with each of the classes teaching traditional line dances and teaching the history and the meaning of the dances and the music. And finally, it's a chance for us to dance with our children and share in what they've learned! It is always a knee-slappin', foot-stompin' good time with tons of smiles and lots of laughter.

See you there!

Conservation in Action

We will be creating a B&B inside our schoolyard habitat. The B&B, which stands for Butterfly & Bee, will provide our pollinating insect friends with features to support their survival. We will be placing plants to attract and nourish a wide variety of insects and as insects form the base of a more complex food web, we hope they will in turn attract other creatures to our delicious habitat! Did you know that California has over 1,600 native species of bees? That’s 1,600 different kinds of bees and this number does not include the infamous Honey Bee that is native to Europe, brought over to California about 380 years ago.  The vast majority of our native bees are solitary species while the honeybee is colonial. Honeybees form colonies with discrete divisions of labor, all working together to raise one family. The majority of our native bees go about their work (preparing for their next generation) as individuals, each separate bee creating their own nest site for their offspring’s survival. Whether a social or solitary bee species, these “keystone” pollinating insects are crucial for plants to set seeds which provides the Earth its next generation of life giving plants. For us humans, one out of every three bites of food results from these pollinators’ work! Insects have so much to teach us and we are creating a schoolyard habitat to explore and appreciate all our places in the web of life.

Reminder: There will be a work party preparation meeting this Friday the 7th at 3:15 for our first work party day on September 22nd, please come!

That’s the buzz for now,

Hattie and Stephanie, Schoolyard Habitat Project Co-ordinators
