Riverfield Roots & Shoots students help care for the campus barnyard animals. We have llamas, alpacas, miniature horses, goats, a donkey, a goose, a peacock, and a young mule. The R & S members visit the barnyard on a regular basis with homemade oat and apple treats for the animals. This year the R & S students designed a shelter for the animals because they were concerned that the animals didn't have enough shelter during the winter months. Students worked with a contractor to build two shelters for our barnyard and pasture. R & S used the funds from recycling paper, plastic, and aluminum cans to pay for the barnyard shelter project. Our R & S goal is to always have care and concern for the animals on our campus and in our barnyard and to help them in any way possible.
