Don Estridge High Tech Middle School is planning to have a Pond Cleanup at their Draco’s Preserve, an outdoor Environmental Classroom that students and faculty have been developing since the fall of 2008. The preserve is being developed by 6th grade science teacher, Bruce Rich and his students.

 

The 3.25-acre preserve includes a deep water pond, marshland, Florida scrubland and a hardwood hammock. On October 26, 2013, from 8:00 AM until 12:00 PM, “National Make a Difference Day”, students, teachers and supporters of our Draco’s Preserve are going to get together to clear trails, provide access points to the pond, develop a butterfly garden and clear over-grown weeds from the pond itself.

“What better way to make a difference,” suggests Mr. Rich, “than to help our kids rediscover the beauty and fascinating diversity of our natural environment? In partnership with the city of Boca Raton and with many community partners, we can show our children that it is possible to live in harmony with nature.”
