A focused effort on environmental science has resulted in exciting new opportunities for our students:
The recently submitted LHPUSD “Whale Tail” grant from the California Coastal Commission moved a step closer to approval after being recommended for funding by the grant review committee and will move to Coastal Commission full approval in early February. Spearheaded by Ash Colin, COVID Director who is also responsible for increasing engaging learning activities, the grant proposes opportunities for our students to have hands-on experience and stewardship of the Pescadero March and the South Coast.
A new elective course at Pescadero High School, Environmental Science, is being offered this second semester by science teacher Lizzy Pyle, a recent graduate of University of California, Berkeley with a B.S. in Environmental Science. Newly developed and approved as an elective by the University of California, this elective broadens course offerings and provides hands-on learning experiences for our students.
We are fortunate to live and work in such a beautiful natural environment. LHPUSD will continue to develop and implement programs to connect our students to their natural world.
