Blue Marble, Big World!
Students, community members and staff had the opportunity to participate in the launch of the Blue Marble Initiative on Earth Day at West Colchester Consolidated School. Weave the Web of Life, T-shirt Creations, Carbon Footprints, Sea Level Rise, face painting and Bees were just a few of the 20 stations available for students to explore the interconnectedness of all things on Earth, raising awareness of global concerns.
Volunteers at each station shared information highlighting the necessity of humans caring for the Earth. The SPCA was presented with items and funds donated by students, a total value of nearly $400. Each student left the event with information, a treeling and a handful of hope for Earth's future.
