Turning Point School Blog
Last week concluded our 8-week winter trimester of After School Programs. For the final class of Ms. Brody’s Nature Adventurers, students were challenged to think of an engaging way to share with their community what they’d learned about Earth Stewardship, or in their own words, Saving the Planet!
The class decided to host the National Parks Service from the Santa Monica Mountains recreational area who brought their mobile Ranger Troca—complete with research tools, animal pelts and even a taxidermy mountain lion—to teach the Turning Point community about the incredible native wildlife and culture right here in our own backyard.
To honor their work, the students of Nature Adventurers earned a "Santa Monica Mountains Junior Park Ranger" badge while they took the following oath:
“I promise to protect the environment
and all the animals within it
so that future generations
may enjoy them as well!”
