Discovering the Science of the Environment at Felege Hiywot

Percoltion tests determine infiltration rates

Every summer, many children are looking for ways to fill their time.  At Felege Hiywot Center, the children are offered a unique opportunity to spend that time learning about science, gardening and community.  Felege Hiywot is an Ethiopian cultural center in the Martindale-Brightwood neighborhood that offers after school programs as well as a week long summer camp teaching STEM in the garden.

The Englewood garden is growing magnificently! If you haven't already, head over to Rural and Washington to see for yourself.

Community members gather on Monday evenings to tend the veggies and enjoy each other's company.  Often there are music, crafts, and early harvests being enjoyed.

River Assessment

I am back from the National Conservation Training Center (NCTC) in Shepherdstown, WV. I went there to participate in a Rosgen Level III shortcourse on river assessment and monitoring. The course is hosted at the NCTC by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS).
