Bath Time for Bees

December 9, 2014 Leave a comment

Last week’s monthly visit from the staff and volunteers from the Environmental Youth Alliance (EYA) had us learning about our Mason Bees and giving them some TLC. Opening the nest tubes we saw the difference in the male and female cocoon’s. We saw strong healthy cocoons and those that were affected by mites, maggots and other creatures determined to destroy our pollinators. Collecting all the cocoons they were then given a gentle bath and left to dry. Once dried they will be placed in a ziplock bag and stored in a fridge until spring. It was a excellent experience and felt good to be giving our crucial pollinators a better chance of survival.

Jr. Alternative Volleyball Tournament

December 6, 2014 Leave a comment

This years VSB Junior Alternative was a smaller this year but the competition was still there. As usual we have strong interest in tournament play that we fielded two teams again – Team ‘Street’ and Team ‘Front’. Team Street dominated the tournament winning all of their games placing them in 1st Place. Team Front was in a three-way tie going into the finals but succeeded in getting a 2nd Place finish!

Thank you to Outreach and Eastside for your competition and participation!

Another Successful Marathon

We had 18 current and past Streetfront students run in the annual Seattle Marathon. The weather was cold but sunny and the youth did a fantastic job, especially those running their first full or half marathon! Well done all!!
