About this Grantee

The “Invasive Plant Field Study” project applies environmental science to the students’ lives. Mr. Rodrigues, Mr. Dashefsky, and Ms. LeBlonde help students conduct field research to investigate the detrimental effects invasive organisms and purple loosestrife, an aggressive perennial plant, have on the local environment. Based on their research, students create a public awareness campaign for their own school.
