For the second time this year, as part of their curriculum, sixth through eighth grade students and teachers from Wauconda's Da Vinci Waldorf School provided an afternoon of service for Citizens for Conservation (CFC).
On Nov. 9, once at CFC, the students remembered to find a pair of work gloves and were ready to carpool to Citizens for Conservation-owned Flint Creek Savanna South. There the students quickly and tirelessly began the removal of invasive multiflora rose and buckthorn. Recalling what they learned from their first service day, the students easily identified the invasives.
After a short water break at the workday’s mid-way point, the students removed additional buckthorn and wild rose to make a pile roughly 10 feet by 10 feet! The students were tired from working in the heat and humidity, but they were amazed at how much buckthorn they had removed in such little time.
Eager to volunteer again, the students look forward to their next CFC community service project on Dec. 14. CFC gives a big THANK YOU to this special group of students from Da Vinci Waldorf School!
