As a Kindergarten teacher and coordinator for much of the "green activity" on campus, I was pleased to have the Central Sierra Environmental Resource Center take an active role in helping our children, grades Pre-K through 5th grade, learn about our foothill environment as well as the high Sierras. They were never "preachy" but helped the students understand stewardship to nature--our need for trees, other flora and wildlife and our duty to protect them and our earth. Their presentations were grade level appropriate and were welcomed by students and teachers alike. I've also worked as a volunteer for CSERC and had the pleasure of laboring to stop erosion by planting trees along creek sides, pulling invasive weeds up and down canyons, helping with fence construction in a fen area, helping set up a fence-building day for a local wildlife reserve that nurses young creatures back to health and releases them to the wild. I often read in our local newspaper the input from Central Sierra Environmental Resource Center regarding environmental impact studies for local development, review of every proposed logging project on private and public lands of the region, water issues, and other community planning.
