Lady Grey Elementary School is creating a Stream of Dreams

It takes an entire community to build a Stream of Dreams, and Lady Grey Elementary School has decided to take on the task.

It takes an entire community to build a Stream of Dreams, and Lady Grey Elementary School has decided to take on the task.

Stream of Dreams is an eco-education program focusing on watersheds and protecting our local water sources.

“It is important to bring watershed awareness to students in our school because we live in a critical area during a critical time,” said Vice Principal of LGES, Laurie MacDougall.

“Golden is situated close to the lovely and vulnerable Columbia Wetlands, as well as the confluence of two mighty rivers. So much of what we do in our everyday lives impacts those waters and the creatures that call them home.”

For the Stream of Dreams watershed education and community art elementary school program, which LGES is doing, the students will be displaying a mural of wooden fish on their school fence.

The entire school will participate in a watershed awareness workshop, followed by an art workshop where they will paint the wooden fish to be hung on the fence.

“Along with all of the wonderful environmental learning opportunities our schools and local agencies provide us with around these issues, Stream of Dreams is an opportunity to increase and solidify watershed awareness and empower young people to act in a responsible, informed manner when living their lives,” said MacDougall.

“We are so lucky to have a program like this come to Golden, and we invite community members to join us for part or all of it.”

The community has already been very supportive of the project. The wood for the fish was donated by LP, the paint was donated by Golden Installations, and all of the fish have been cut out by the Bold and Robertson families.

The art workshops will be taking place on May 1, with the hanging of the fish happening the following morning on May 2. Anyone interested in helping out is welcome to come out on May 2 at 9 a.m. with some pliers and hang the fish on the fence.
