Harry Hurst Middle School attended 2007 Earth Fest.
The students facilitated a variety of different activities for the 16,000 people that visited the program’s booth over the two-day period.
Students made arts and crafts with kids, helped visitors use the two-way magnifiers to identify bugs collected throughout the zoo lagoons, played games with the kids, and also shared information about the wetlands and wetland animals.
As part of the Dow St. Charles Operations Community Grant, students also gave out 1,000 bald cypress trees to replace some of the trees that were lost due to Hurricane Katrina.
Students learned about planting Louisiana's state tree from Louisiana Agriculture and Forestry agents and then passed on this information to the many recipients.
