Jr Ocean Guardians received an update email from Brooke who has been instrumental in helping the Green Team at Coolidge School in Wyckoff, New Jersey learn how they can be environmental stewards. Brooke had reached out to Jr Ocean Guardians asking for a copy of the Jr Ocean Guardians activity book and shared her vision on how the Green Team would be learning about ocean awareness, recycling, plastic pollution, and even building a school garden. JOG provided our activity book, along with information from other organizations who are doing amazing work to raise awareness on plastic pollution.
The Green Team had a Theme Day Room at Coolidge School and it was all about ocean conservation, it's amazing! And, the best part is that they have saved everything that was used for future projects. Please scroll down and take a look at all of the photos.
