Edmison Heights Public School Student Perspectives

At the RCE Launch at the Gathering Space, we invited students from Edmison Heights to share their thoughts on what the Habitat Area means to them (which is a half-acre area of the schoolyard that's been naturalized with pollinator gardens & forest). We were amazed by their responses, below are a couple we wanted to highlight.

“I’ve been a Habitat helper (at Edmison Heights) for quite a while. The habitat is just an amazing place to be. The trees tower around you and just calm you down. It’s so refreshing, like a cold drink on a hot summer day. Trees help us to breath. They provide resources. If we didn’t have trees, we wouldn’t be here today. I think that by helping out in the Habitat I am doing my part to help people and wildlife.”
