The logo of Jane Goodall's Roots & ShootsKindergarten Teacher Lisa Davis recently won a mini-grant from Jane Goodall’s youth organization, Roots & Shoots. The grant money will go toward materials to build a migratory butterfly garden at the South Campus. The students will learn about the native butterflies of Rock Creek, including the endangered monarch butterfly, then design, construct, and plant a garden to feed monarchs and other local butterflies.

Roots & Shoots provides mini-grants to educators around the U.S. to help “young Jane Goodalls” pursue their passion, start service campaigns, and work to ensure a better future for people, animals, and the environment.
