Student Work at Wildlife Sanctuary

Reprinted from the Edgewater-Davidsonville  Patch 
Key School students participated in a service project for the South River Federation at their Davidsonville Wildlife Sanctuary project site on Monday.
Eighth-graders planted native tree species, wetland grasses, and switchgrass. They collaborated with volunteers from Double Tree Hotel, met the Bowie Baysox mascot, and took tours of the sanctuary.
The project they worked on is a multistage water recovery system that uses a series of ponds to capture, filter and absorb runoff from the animals, according to The Key School.
Key's participation was part of an Earth Day event that began with a film exemplifying individual sustainability activism and closing with an address of Earth Day's political and cultural history.
Baysox mascot Rocko was out in the community helping with the project thanks to a partnership with Chesapeake Bay Trust, according to a Baysox spokesman. The Baysox posted a video of Rocko'sday with the Key School students.
