Science teacher, Gwynne Millar, spent 2 days on Prudence Island at the Narragansett Bay National Estuarine Research Preserve studying estuaries. The Teachers on the Estuary (TOTE) program is sponsored by NOA. There she tagged Monarch butterflies, collected data on estuary health and the impact due to climate change and used a seine net to identify and count beneficial organisms as an indicator of estuary health. She plans to take some students to the preserve in the spring to help them better understand human impact on the environment and about the collaborative efforts among many federal, state and local organizations working to protect and restore these vital habitats.

The EWG Floriculture class has been learning about floriculture in different time periods and how those times and arrangement styles have had an influence on modern day floriculture. The students in the pictures below made time style arrangements to go along with their presentations. In addition, today we learned to make armatures from grape vines and wisteria to create a more modern bouquet using natural vine materials that they used in colonial times. The students did a great job with their time period pieces and their more modern arrangements! I love their creativity! Nice job to all of the floriculture students on their projects!
