Wetlands Reconstruction Project at Clifford School, in Redwood City: Green Kids Now partnered with Save The Frogs organization on this project. After the yearlong fundraising campaign for this project, Pavan donated $4,400 to Save The Frogs for this project!
On November 30th, Pavan started the day with Climate Reality presentation to the 6-8 graders about 280 students, and then the students and volunteers from the school and Save The Frogs volunteers, worked together in shifts on the reconstructing of the wetlands! They worked for two days (Nov 30 and Dec 1) and were able to reconstruct six small wetlands! An educational video of this project will be created by Save The Frogs and shared soon, so schools could learn how to do their own nature restoration projects.
The goal was to restore the wetlands behind the school and to provide quality habitat for the native frogs and plants to thrive, as well as provide outdoor environmental education experiences for the students of Clifford school.
Pavan also partnered with The Digital Frog International, and donated the educational software for digital frog dissection, which would replace the actual killing and dissection of real frogs, and also teach about the habitats and ecosystems.
