Community need for saving the environment:
Our environment is a precious resource which needs to be protected.
Words such as ozone layer, toxins, and landfill have crept into the
vocabularies of even the very young. As a society, we have become
conscious of the impact of pollution on our planet. We watched in
horror when oil spilled into
the pristine waters off of Alaska.
In Maryland, the Chesapeake
Bay is threatened by pollution. We are learning that even
our smallest actions -- a soda can thrown out of the car window,
car oil dumped down the storm drain -- have consequences. By working
on projects to protect the environment, students will learn how
to live in harmony with their environment, and will work to preserve
it for themselves and their children.
