Hands-on morning for school children at Puttenahalli Lake

On 19th Dec 2011, about 75 middle-school students of The Brigade School, and some staff members, visited Puttenahalli Lake for a hands-on morning.The children were given a briefing on the condition of the lake prior to its restoration (when it had almost vanished) and they could see the lake for themselves, after restoration. They familiarised themselves with the birds, trees and other life at the lake, through a Nature Walk with expert inputs from avid bird-watchers SK Srinivas and Prasanna. They also spent some time gardening, de-weeding and checking out the on-site waste management.

Waster products like plastics and cans will surely damage our environment if not properly disposed. It's good to know that The Brigade School let the children view the lake. This will increase their awareness about proper waste disposal and waste management.

I think that every legit essay writing companies should promote hands-on activities for children. Especially gardening is very cool for such a purpose.
