Lura Libby School and Cushing Community School students and staff enjoyed two programs presented by Chewonki educator, Jessica Woodend.

Attentive kindergarteners and first-graders learned all about Animal Adaptations and were fascinated by the walking stick, skink, lizard and screech owl.

Woodend's program Birds of Prey held students’ interest in grades two, three and four. All programs involved hands-on activities and focused on caring for wildlife. Funds were provided through grants from Georges River Education Foundation and Fast Track Grants.
