SPAWN’s Roots & Shoots Program Launches in Marin County with an Art Challenge in the Classrooms! Summer 2010– Marin’s Salmon Protection and Watershed Network (SPAWN) has joined forces with Jane Goodall’s global environmental and humanitarian program for youth called “Roots & Shoots.” As a registered Roots & Shoots partner, SPAWN will host youth community service projects providing opportunities for local students to demonstrate their care for the environment through art and watershed conservation projects. SPAWN will launch their new program this fall with a project dedicated to raising community awareness about water conservation. Directed towards local classrooms, this project strives to instill conscious use of natural resources in hope that youth can support a better future for currently imperiled aquatic species such as wild salmon.
