Contents Notes
This inspiring film tells the story of the Bay Institute's STRAW Project (Students and Teachers Restoring a Watershed). In 1992, Laurette Rogers' 4th-grade class asked her what they could do to save endangered species? It was a simple question that would change their lives. Partnering with ranchers, scientists, government agencies, and schools, this remarkable effort led to the restoration of 20 miles of habitat for the endangered California freshwater shrimp in the Stemple Creek watershed of Sonoma and Marin counties. In the process it galvanized the local community and led to significant educational innovations by connecting classrooms with their local watershed. The STRAW Project serves as testimony to the importance of empowering children, which in turn transforms us all.
