The Wildlife of Shasta County
This mission with Project Noah was developed as a means by which our Shasta Roots & Shoots members can share their data with others and participate in a nature mapping program. While taking part in nature walks as a group or individually with our families, this mission is a combined effort where we can share our discoveries with one another. Many of our activities meet science content standards for California schools. Our group's members include home-schoolers, students from charter schools, and public school students that are interested in our projects. Sign in to join mission
Roots & Shoots is the Jane Goodall Institute's environmental and humanitarian program for youth. Our mission is to foster respect and compassion for all living things, to promote understanding of all cultures and beliefs and to inspire each individual to take action to make the world a better place for animals, the environment and the human community. The Shasta County Roots & Shoots is involved in projects supporting Anderson River Park, Cottonwood Watershed Group, and Anderson Partnership for Healthy Children. In Anderson River Park, we monitor physical changes in the ponds and macro invertebrates which are sensitive to pollution. We check for invasive plants and animals and we have created a GPS map of the trails. We put up ten trail signs pointing out native plants. With Cottonwood Watershed Group, we have planted trees to support the creek bank and provide cover for wildlife. We monitor Cottonwood Creek at various sites for physical changes and invasive plants. With Anderson Partnership for Healthy Children, we promote health and self-esteem of youth by their participation in these projects.
