On March 18, 2012 students, parents, community partners and even the Mayor gathered at Norris Jr High to engage in an evening of FUN promoting summer activities such as reading, healthy eating, excersize and serving others . . . that is where the Conservation Fusion piece fit into the puzzle.
Participants created bracelets for children in Madagascar. WHY?
Because we are all connected. Many students in other parts of the world do not have the opportunities or education we are so lucky to enjoy in the US.
With less than 10% of Madagascar's original forest remaining, CF works with teachers, schools and community members to educate about the importance of conservation and promote tree planting.
Each child in Madagascar who "digs in" and plants trees will receive a hand-made bracelet created by Omaha youth.
