Please join us for this Saturday, December 7, from 9 am to 12 pm  for our second volunteer day of the year at the Glenn Creek Nature Preserve. Pizza will be served to all volunteers at 12 pm.

Please remember to bring water, wear long sleeves and pants. We have extra gloves, but at our last volunteer day found the rubber or leather gloves work better than the cloth ones we provide. We will continue to remove invasive species, reinforce the trails, and mulch. 3 Service hours available to all students!

Move It Monday: Fun Family Fitness

moveitmonday

From our friends at #MoveItMonday

The sound of the wind rustling through branches, the sight of moss crawling over tree stumps, the sweet smell of fallen leaves after a fresh rain: There’s magic in the woods… but you’ve got to go find it.

Make this Move it Monday an afternoon of exploration with a family nature walk and scavenger hunt through the forest, public park, or even your backyard. Children of all ages are drawn to the adventure and endless intrigue of the outdoors, but incorporating a scavenger hunt will keep them moving and engaged (and well behaved).

We Love our Crossing Guards!

This is Crossing Guard Appreciation Week and the City of Decatur showed our 38 crossing guards some love!

The City held a breakfast for them this morning where they were recognized with certificates and a gift. Several schools also honored their crossing guards this morning with flowers and cards.

Next time you have a crossing guard to help you cross the street be sure to tell them how much you appreciate them! They are out early in the morning in all kinds of weather, then return mid afternoon and keep a smile on their face as they help children travel to and from school safely.
