ArtWorking with Our Wetlands
A community project supporting stewardship of the Hamilton Wetlands, Novato California. Olive Elementary School fifth graders worked on an Art/Science Fusion project that was highlighted at the Community Day on April 26, 2015, at the Hamilton Wetlands Nursery. Several students helped create “The History of the Hamilton Wetlands” video below that was showcased at the event.
These fifth grade students embarked upon a multi-faceted environmental and educational process melding natural science, creative arts and public education on behalf of the Hamilton Wetlands Restoration Project (HWRP).
Partnering with Christina McWhorter, Native Plant Expert for the Hamilton Wetlands Restoration Project, Ane Carla Rovetta, Terwilliger Environmental Educator of the Year, artist and zoologist, Pam Haessly and Marcus Okun from Novato Community TV, Novato Mayor Pro Tem Pat Eklund and the Novato Chamber of Commerce Leadership Team, this joint project is called ArtWorking with Our Wetlands with the intent of leaving a sustainable legacy for the current and future generations who will live here in Novato.
