Our school brought 5th graders to the conservancy and it was an awesome experience. Thank you so much for promoting science and the enviornment! The whole trip was also fun and engaging. Thanks:)

The concervancy was awesome! Many of our students had never been in on an outdoor adventure. They loved it! Our Group leaders were very knowledgeable and had un ending patience with the students. I grew up in the country, and still learned new things! Thank you for having us!

Our students had such a wonderful experience on their field trip! The experiences they had were so enriching and will open them up to seeing nature in a whole new way. It's hard to pick the favorite, but the pond experience definitely stood out for all the kids. Thank you so much!

I brought my environmental science class to explore watersheds with the Bayou Land Conservancy. The program called, "No Child Left Inside" was an absolute breath of fresh air quite literally! My students were apprehensive before we left but were ready to go back the very next day in class. They were wading through water and hurrying back to have specimens identified, had a friendly invasive species removal competition, and along the way learned the names of all the trees and shrubs we take for granted.

My class thoroughly enjoyed all activities. They got to actually take time examining what was in front of them without any pressure and thus, truly be able to appreciate it. They learned everything first hand taught in the book about watersheds and invasive species, and they had fun doing it. Even my students that I didn’t expect to respond came out of their shell and surprised me with what they were able to share and contribute, things that I taught them in class, but never heard them express.

I liked the program offered by Bayou Land Conservancy because there was an environmental educator who tailored the day after what we were learning in class and had everything I needed to show my administration this is an educational field trip. They had a pre-test, informative watershed booklet, and post test along with scavenger hunt to show off their knowledge.

The fieldtrip was absolutely wonderful for all involved, students, administration, myself, and the legacy gained some conservation supporters.

If you want to see your children or students shine, I highly recommend taking your students to explore watersheds with Bayou Land Conservancy!

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the classroom because the students relate everything back to their experience on the field trip. They speak up more in class and are more comfortable as a group than before.

Bayou Land Conservancy is an amazing and knowledgeable group of people that have a passion for educating young people about the natural resources of the outdoors, and how they can be a resource themselves. The Woods Project brings 30-40 kids on to their lands every fall and spring to do service projects - but these projects are more than service-oriented. BLC provides educational components to connecting the students with the work and activities they are partaking in. We have worked with BLC for many years, and look forward to continue a strong relationship with them.

Cynthia Salvaggio and her crew at Bayouland Conservancy helped fund my students to their only field trip this year. Bayouland Conservancy taught my students and myself about science topics that brought us into the outdoors. It was wonderful because my students got to experience many things at the conservancy such as view a decomposing deer, digging up nonnative plants, scavenger hunt, and learning about certain types of plants and trees. the experience was awesome and my kids really enjoyed being able to go outside the city limits to see what nature has to offer them!

Being outside doing the same activities as my students were doing was an awesome experience. It built relationships with my students that you cannot bring into the classroom. We laughed and learned a lot of cool new stuff.

My Deaf Middle School Science classes had the opportunity to go to the Bayou Land Conservancy fora filed trip recently. We had just begun our unit on Biomes and local habitats. On their return students continued to talk, ask questions, look at their pictures and generally insist I stay on the unit. They were so excited. They felt a part of the environment by helping with the planting. here at school they are now much more engaged in our vegetable garden and ponds. The staff was extremely accomodating to the special needs students we have in our classes. We will be back! Thank you Bayou Land Conservancy.

It was easy to plan with Ms salvaggio. She stayed in touch before and after with good resources, maps, instructions and general information.

I think they will grow and succeed fast, especially if they can get grants to help teachers and students attend. Funds are being cut and private sector needs to step up to the plate to insure these important programs thrive.

I took my students to Little Cypress Creek last November and I was greatly impressed and grateful that we were given opportunity to experience real science for my students.We did pond investigation, animal / plant identification and adaptation as we walked the trail. Each station, there was a volunteer who is like a teacher because of the ways the science lesson was presented. The volunteers engaged the students first by showing the actual specimen, then asking guided questions that made the students excited about learning more .Who would not be excited if you see the real water snake in the pond.I strongly commend Ms. Cynthia Salvaggio for her leadership and expertise to provide a TEKS aligned,high quality, real science life experience for students. Thank you so much and more power to Legacy Land Trust ( now Bayou Land Conservancy)and hope you continue to assist teachers like me provide the best kind of educational experience to our students.

Recently I was with my 7th grade students to a field trip in Sheldon Lake, (Houston, TX) where we have a great learning hands on experience. I took 140 kids in two trips to the park, staff, volunteers and park personnel were absolutely fantastic. Initiatives like this definetly help in educating and growing young scientists.
