Volunteer of the Week

Bree Reynolds in 50 feet of water at Obyan Beach.

Bree Reynolds has been an invaluable member of Beautify CNMI! for several months. In 2006 she helped us find students to participate in stream cleanups, beach cleanups, tree plantings, and field trips (I prefer to call them outdoor classroom experiences). Oh yeah, she came along, too. She is also taking stream storm water samples with DEQ and RC&D's Stream Team.

Bree teaches at Hopwood Junior High School and at Northern Marianas College. Next year she plans to use the Micronesian Challenge as the centerpiece of her problem solving based curriculum. She is going to present the Challenge, to effectively conserve 30% of our near shore resources and 20% of our forest resources, and she is going to task the students to come up with a proposal.

I can't wait.

Bree is also building a Recycling Shed at Hopwood JHS. We need the following supplies:

  • 2 pieces of plywood
  • 64’ of 2”x4”
  • Metal Roofing 8’x8’
  • Outdoor house paint (any color)
  • Paint for oil drums (recycling containers) (any color-15 drums)
  • Chicken wire enough to line each drum.
We'll be looking for the supplies in the New Year, but if anyone wants to donate them now, that would be even better.
