Sunrise 7:22-Sunset 6:14 Students science Roni Java Staff Writer rjava@plumasnews. om nd Rob Wade would be the first to tell you that it's the host of amazing teachers and partner organizations who make the Plumas Unified School District's acclaimed K-6 Outdoor Core environmental education program such an outstanding success. And, of course, the pristine wilderness of Plumas County is definitely a star of the show. But Wade acknowledges it's the kids who bring the program to life. Calmly walking to the front of the auditorium Oct. 5, he took the microphone and challenged a big room full of Quincy Elementary School students to proclaim what it's like to be a Mountain Kid. "Who likes learning about the environment? Who's been to their Learning Landscapes outdoor classes? Who's hiked in Boyle Ravine or all the way up to the Big Q?" he asked the packed Friday morning assembly, smiling. Laughter and cheers rang out from wall to wall as hands flew in the air with calls of"I have, I have!" "whoa!" said Wade with his characteristic enthusiasm. "Well, I have a cool video for you today from one of our partners, the Feather River Land Trust, who made our Learning Landscapes possible. Would you like to see that?" Wade, who serves as PUSD's coordinator for environmental education and the federal Next Generation Science Standards; has an enviable job. He brings together resources and people to teach and inspire Plumas County kids about the wonders of environmental studies, how to love and care about their surroundings and what it means to grow up being stewards of the natural world all around them. In short order, he will visit every PUSD elementary school in Chester, Greenville, Portola and Quincy to make this kickoff presentation. Today, he was visiting QES students to launch this school year's Outdoor Core program and tell them about the about canteens species-specific studies that will put them right in the middle of hands-on learning -- quite literally. "Kindergartners, you'll be learning about gardens," he tells the excited primary students, "and first-graders, it's your year to study invertebrates, who knows what those are? Yes, that's right, it's your year of the bug and you'll get to hold a handful of ladybugs!" Squeals of delight erupt from the wiggling little bodies seated on the polished auditorium floor. Queuing up the scenic FRLT video, the science guy-extraordinaire lists the rest of the elementary school curriculum that makes Outdoor Core a unique model for environmental education nationwide. "Second-graders, it's reptiles and amphibians for you," Wadesays and rushes of "0oh, cool!" burst from the crowd. He continues, knowing his audience like a favorite movie or storybook. "Third-graders, you'll be learning about bears and flying squirrels during your year of the mammal and fourth-graders will be going to our amazing creeks to fred out all about trout for their year of the fish. With fifth-graders, it's their year to learn to identify birds and make cool entries in scientific journals. And sixth-graders will have the amazing watershed year that everybody looks forward to!" Appreciative cheers erupt here and there from students who obviously have an older brother or sister who has told them all about the Plumas-to-the-Pacific projects awaiting them. Wade's about to press play and he's having a really good time. % just waAt/to celebr~t~a!~ of YOU," he tellS the students. "You're only a Mountain Kid if you know your mountains because you've been out in the trees. We want you to go outside and have the tools you need, like scientific journals and binoculars. And today, I want to show you this, your awesome new Mountain Kids ; canteen because we have See Students, page 13A Propam in Plu.m & Sien'a 65 East Sierra Ave, Portola Very Competively Priced No delivery fees, statement fees, or hidden costs.
