Recycle & River Preservation Project

Hands Across the World students learn about the importance of taking care of and preserving our nation's rivers.The students learn about keeping the water clean, conserving their water usage, and the importance of educating others about water preservation. They even volunteer stenciling storm drains in St. Cloud. As part of the science curriculum the students also learn about the water cycle, our wetlands, the Mississippi River, birds of the aquatic corridor, local aquatic invertebrates and plants, and about the St. Cloud water supply and water treatment. Every three months, we continue our learning and updating about recycling and taking better care of our environment in collaboration with the staff from the City of St. Cloud.
