BERKELEY COUNTY KIDS WHO CARE INC
March 10, 2011

I have been a board member for Kids Who Care now for almost ten years and each year I get reminded anew of how much of an impact this program has on the school children in Berkeley County. For many children, it is the first time in their lives that they have had a chance to see some of the wildlife exhibited - let alone getting a chance to be face-to-face with them. The same goes for many of the hands-on exhibits that give the children a greater understanding and respect for their environment and environmental science.

This raising of environmental awareness is continued in the classroom both through the science projects that the children create and through the grants awarded to the winning classrooms that are used to further promote environmental science in our county.
