August was spent organizing several volunteer days, updating Urban EcoSteward information and reformatting the High School Urban EcoSteward curriculum and session structure. Summer volunteer days included projects to improve tread and drainage of trails in Schenley and Highland Park, as well as removing invasive species in Schenley, Frick and Cliffside parks. At our last partner meeting for Urban EcoStewards, we reviewed the program guide I drafted. This month I edited the log, making the changes the group decided on. Additionally, I resolved confusion with the EcoSteward hours log, combining two disparate lists and updating hours and contact information for 2011. Finally, Marijke, two HUES teachers, the science curriculum coordinator for Pittsburgh Public Schools and I have been working to refocus the HUES learning goals and align the program with state education standards. In August, we mostly finalized the 2011 HUES programming.
