Southern California Gas Company (SoCalGas) awarded the OCCC a $10,000 Environmental Education Grant to help connect corpsmembers’ work experience with their classroom learning. We will use the money to create a Habitat Restoration Field Training Manual that will teach corpsmembers to identify native species and how to properly apply herbicide. Then, corpsmembers will be able to come back to school and learn more about concepts learned in the manual and in the field in their science classes. This will make learning come to life for our corpsmembers – thank you SoCalGas!
