Here is how the project went:


Through this project I/we learned:

We learned about invasive plants, we learned about farm animals, we learned about native species, we learned how to successfully clean up trash, we learned that littering is a big issue on our local river, and we learned to respect wildlife (like manatee). Look don’t touch.

What I/we might change:

More people

My/our favorite part of this project was:

The animals and kayaking (river cleanup), and state park

Some tips, tricks or fun facts about the project:

When you go to the park or kayaking, bring something to collect trash in. Do not liter. It can harm wildlife.
