A huge watershed thank you to my wonderful friends Eamon from Woodridge Elementary and Audrey and Mya from Agnes Little for these wonderful drawings. These mean so much to me and remind me why I love my work. All of the watershed explorers are special and I am so proud of the work that each of you has accomplished in just a short amount of time!
Happy Holidays Watershed Explorers! I would like to extend the warmest watershed wishes to you and your families for very safe and happy holidays. All of you have helped to make the NBC Watershed Explorer Program a huge success in 2019 and I can't wait to see all of the explorer work in 2020.
Let's get outside and explore during the holiday. Even with snow on the ground and a chill in the air, there is still so much to explore. I would love for you to share your stories on the website so that other watershed explorers can read and be inspired by your explorations. Please use the comment section below to share any of your outdoor adventures.
A very big thank you to the students in Mrs. Gentile's class from Anna McCabe for the inspirational work that they shared with me. Your efforts brought tears to my eyes and I am so very proud of you. I would love to hear about even more students getting out into the watershed and enjoying the beauty of nature, now and into the new year.
LAST YEAR'S EXPLORER CONFERENCE
A very heartfelt thank you to all of the students, teachers, chaperons, and NBC staff who made this year's Watershed Explorers Program a monumental success. It was an absolute pleasure working with each and every one of you and seeing the growth in your understanding of how to make this Earth a better place for all. I am beyond proud and hope that you will share your knowledge with others. Keep exploring this summer and for years to come!!!
