Dinner & a Movie


Join us for a presentation of ‘A Simple Question: The Story of STRAW’

“A Simple Question: the Story of STRAW” is an inspiring film that chronicles students’ efforts to save an endangered species. It all began in Laurette Rogers’ 4th grade class as a project to save the imperiled CA freshwater shrimp, and has morphed into a regional science learning program combining habitat restoration work and community service. That class project is now PRBO Conservation Science’s STRAW Project, or Students and Teachers Restoring a Watershed. In 1992, Laurette Rogers’ 4th grade class asked what they could do save endangered species. It was a simple question that would change their lives. Partnering with ranchers, scientists, and government agencies, this remarkable service learning project has led to the restoration of 21 miles of riparian habitat for the CA freshwater shrimp. In the process, it catalyzed significant educational innovations by connecting kids with nature and classrooms with community. The STRAW program serves as testimony to the importance of empowering children to transform their world, which in turn, transforms us all.                                                                            

The film is 36 minutes in length, but inspires you for life!
