Students in the South Plantation High School Environmental Science and Everglades Restoration magnet program are taking the matter of increasing awareness and encouraging protection of the world and its oceans into their own hands at the school’s fourth annual Environmental Day.

The hands-on outreach program with a marine focus, will provide third grade students from two Broward elementary schools with an up-close and personal look at the marine environment, how it affects their lives and what they can do to protect it. The South Plantation students will facilitate 15 interactive learning centers including a touch tank that will encourage the elementary school students to take earth's conservation into their own hands.

This year, Environmental Day is expanding to a two-day format. Broward Estates Elementary School will attend on March 30, and Tropical Elementary School will participate on March 31. The program will begin at 9:30 a.m. and end at 2 p.m. in the Culpepper Magnet Amphitheater South Plantation High, located at 1300 S.W. 54 Avenue in Plantation.

Seniors Brent Pollack and Melanie Oringer, both of whom are mentored by marine science teacher Elisabeth Jacobi, oversee Environmental Day. For additional information you can e-mail teacher Elisabeth Jacobi or call her at (754) 323-1982.
