Environmental Conservation is one of the biggest challenges facing our planet and for the last couple of weeks the ASJ Cubs! Last week the Cubs learned all about pollution and how the lifestyle choices we make can have a dramatic impact on our environment and the wildlife who share it with us. The Cubs learned how how long it takes for different types of waste to biodegrade (or not) and are carrying out experiments to see if the facts they read are borne out in the "ASJ Laboratory".
The Cubs also took on several projects to make a positive impact on our local environment: a week-long challenge to keep a recycling diary, two projects to recycle plastic bottles to make bird feeders and dog poop bag dispensers and a local litter pick. Last night the Cubs donned their warmest coats and wooly hats to install the poop bag dispensers around our village and collected several bin bags full of rubbish.
A big well done to the Cubs for all their hard work and thank you to Nicola for organising all of the games, activities and challenges.
Next week we look to the skies and our budding Environmentalists will become Astronomers at UCLan's Alston Observatory :)
