Green School Club

We will post the Club’s sign up form here
when it becomes available.

The Green School club is an after school club that meets once a month at DES during the school year.
At each meeting, we learn about ways in which we can be good stewards to our environment.
This is a hands-on club – we learn by doing. We spend as much time as possible outside learning by observing and doing.

In the past we have built miniature wind turbines, planted trees, worked with live terrapins and chickens.
We have had presentations from scientists, farmers, bee keepers, and naturalists.

In addition to the once a month meetings, we also do a few special field trips. We work with the South River Federation to help keep our waters clean by planting living shore lines, buffers, and erosion step ponds.  This year we are also planning on spending a day at Sandy Point for the Maryland Green School Youth Summit in the late spring.
