MOBILE KITCHEN CART PROJECT - With Covid-19 and closure of schools, the SASWCD switched gears to continue reaching students as part of our USDA-Farm to School grant. Instead of in-class hands-on cooking classes with Houlton elementary students, we began a new online video series called "Snack Bites." These videos are recipes for quick, homemade snacks that are simple enough for children to make without adult supervision. Students can view the You Tube videos on the RSU29 "Snack Bites" page - http://www.rsu29.org/district-information/snack-bites Thank you to local artist Frank Sullivan for generously designing the "Snack Bites" logo free of charge!
OTHER PROJECTS and EDUCATION
BASIC AND ADVANCED EROSION CONTROL PRACTICES - The SASWCD and Dept of Environmental Protection have postponed this class at the Houlton Town Office until Wednesday, April 21, 2021. Due to the current circumstances, if a contractor needed this course to become certified in Erosion & Sedimentation Control Practices, please contact the District for information on how to temporarily obtain the certification online.
NORTHERN REGIONAL ENVIROTHON and FALL FIELD DAYS - Due to school closures within Maine, the regional Envirothon that was scheduled for May 19 at Riverfront Park in Houlton has been canceled. We anticipate the cancellation of the Envirothon Fall Field Days as well but please check back this fall for updates!
