Wellesley High Schools students Sophie Chen, Charlotte Clapham, Lily Fenton, Olivia Gieger, Johanna Keigler, and Shamus Miller wanted to inspire. They are part of the Students for Environmental Awareness (SEA) Club and created a Hunnewell Environmental Club. They have met with up to 30 students after school to discuss and do hands on activities related to the environment.
First, they took a broad look at the earth system, discussing waste (plastic, food, trash) and decorated reusable bags. Then they dug deeper into the greenhouse effect, planted seedlings, considered ocean climates and wrote a school wide PSA. More recently, they narrowed down the discussion to endangered animals, and had students pick an endangered species to research and paint in its habitat.
Meet some of these incredible students and learn more about this High School Club at the Wellesley Farmers’ Market on Saturday, June 18th between 9 & 1 on the lawn at 309 Washington Street.
