Habitat For Learning

The children here in Augusta, GA are getting ready to dive into summer break and are ready to trade books for swimsuits. Before the bells rang, Gerald Jones Subaru was able to reach out to Baker Place Elementary and implant the importance of preserving the earth. As part of the Subaru Loves the Earth initiative, we installed a Certified Wildlife Habitat with Principal Fleischauer and a few of Baker Place Elementary’s 5th grade students. We planted several butterfly bushes, placed a toad house, set up a bird bath, birdfeeders, and birdhouses. The students will water the plants the rest of the school year and one of the teachers has volunteered to care for the habitat over the summer months. When the students return in August, the habitat will be growing in and abundantly providing food and shelter for the wildlife in the area. Classrooms will have the chance to take their science studies outside and learn hands on how a natural habitat is maintained. Gerald Jones Subaru is excited to provide such a wonderful learning tool for our community’s youth!
