Conservation in Action

What weighs over 4,000 pounds and is scheduled for delivery to VCS mid-September? That would be our Schoolyard Habitat Project rock features!* These boulders (yes, boulders!) and cobbles will be placed throughout the project to provide habitat for our reptile and amphibian friends as well as places for us humans to interact with and enjoy nature. Our Schoolyard Habitat’s first workday is right around the corner… please come on Saturday September 22nd from 9:00 – 2:00 (or anywhere inside that window) to help do some major site prep work. We are encouraging families to come, however, this time the work will be done by the adults amongst us while our kids enjoy each other’s company. After this site preparation workday our classes (and future workdays) will be superbly setup to accomplish creating our Schoolyard Habitat!

For the love of lizards,

Hattie and Stephanie, Schoolyard Habitat Project Co-ordinators

*Much thanks goes to VCS’s Nunley family’s landscape supply business DryScape for its generous support by discounting the rock and soil products we purchased for the project, you guys rock (get it?!?!)



Have an appreciation you wish to make? You can email it in by
Friday morning or just stop by the office and drop off a note in the orange
Appreciation Jar and it will get added to the next Bulletin.

I wanted to say thank you to the secret waterer, my sister, Carissa who kept the gardens beautiful during our warm summer months.   -Lilia Parker-Meyers
