It's graduation season, and we'd like to congratulate all of our local students who participated in our "Living Classroom" program during this school year. Thanks to a generous grant from The San Diego Foundation, and our partnership with the Earth Discovery Institute, BCLT was able to engage over 150 students in environmental education curriculum, field trips to our local ecological preserve, and hands-on service learning projects during 2015-2016 school year.  Not only did students have the opportunity to get outside and enjoy nature, they left our community even better than they found it! 

Students from Boulder Oaks Elementary School in Alpine installed 2 western blue-bird boxes and a burrowing owl box at Wright's Field MSCP Preserve to enhance wildlife habitat, while students from Campo Elementary in the Mountain Empire Unified School District planted 30 native plants at the entrance to the preserve in order to beautify the trailhead and improve pollinator habitat.

It was a great partnership with local non-profits, local students, and our local open-space lands... truly an opportunity for "Opening the Outdoors" and making
memories for students in our "Living Classroom." Thanks to all of our partners, funding agencies, local school districts, educators, and especially to all of the
students who helped make this new program a success.
