On June 10th, the students and teachers of Medford High School will be participating in a stewardship event organized by the Community Conservation Education Partnership (CCEP) from 10 am -12 pm with lunch and music to follow. The CCEP is a committee of local organizations including Medford High School, Eagle Eye Institute, the Friends of the Middlesex Fells Reservation, MA DCR, USDA Forest Service, US EPA, and Tufts University. The CCEPaims to connect the entire Medford High School community (students, teachers, and parents alike) to the Middlesex Fells Reservation through innovative in-school and after-school outdoor education, field research, and enrichment activities. If you are a supporter of outdoor education, please consider participating in this outreach event to show your support.
Volunteers can simply agree to assist a teacher with a small group of approximately 20 students on a specific task in the Fells, such as identifying different plant species in the area or removing an invasive plant species in a designated area. Volunteers are also welcome to lead a group of students in an activity such as reading Thoreau in the Lawrence Woods or guiding a group of students to a location to capture the scene with photography, poetry, or any form of art.
Any idea for a project is welcome; the CCEP wants these projects to be diverse in content to pique the interest of all of the community members of Medford High School!
|Application Deadline: Any suggestion for a project will need prior approval by the CCEP and Headmaster of Medford High School preferably by May 21st.|
Application Details: If you are interested in volunteering, please contact Karen O’Hagan at karen.ohagan[at]tufts.edu with a short description of your project idea or just your willingness to assist a Medford High School teacher by spending 2 hours outside along a trail with a group of high school students.
