For all those interested in the animal shelter education project: The project seeks to teach junior high school aged students (11-14) about proper animal care. We are creating an interactive program which will involve students working in teams to solve "crimes" related to animal neglect and abuse, hoarding, and a cold case. We need a planning and media team to put their creative juices to work and bring this program to life--this will be presented to the entire city of Arlington when it is completed (hopefully by March), and all those who contributed in its entirety will be given explicit credit. (So please expect to contribute to the team over the next six months.) This is a wonderful opportunity to contribute to a cause that not only helps enrich the lives of individual student volunteers, but it looks to better Arlington by transforming how future generations view animal care.
Friday October 28th we will be meeting in group study room 414A in the library from 2pm to 4pm.
Also Saturday November 5 we are meeting with Chris Huff, the one who initiated the project, and an animal investigator who will help answer questions and guide us in the right direction. The animal shelter is located at 1000 Southeast Green Oaks Blvd.
