SFVAS is happy to announce that the Sherman Oaks Neighborhood Council has provided SFVAS with $2,000 to help with our Sepulveda Basin Environmental Education Program.
The San Fernando Valley Audubon Society’s environmental education program is the Sepulveda Basin Environmental Education Program (SBEEP). SBEEP provides 2,000 LAUSD school children field trips to the Sepulveda Basin North Wildlife Preserve (the only remaining Wildlife Area in the Sepulveda Basin). SBEEP fieldtrips make the lessons learned in the classroom real. The children actually see food webs, the effects of environmental pollution and the beauty of a working ecosystem in a natural setting. SFVAS needed help to maintain it’s commitment of funding 30 fieldtrips per year.
Community support like that of the Sherman Oaks Neighborhood Council is very valuable to SFVAS and we thank them.
