Essay for Apprentice Ecologist Sara

My name is Sara, I am 7 years old and I live in Houston, Texas. Every year my family does
one good deed for each of the eight days of Hanukkah.
This year, we decided to pick up litter in one of our favorite parks.
Hermann park is located on almost 500 acres south of downtown Houston. It
includes huge green spaces, a Japanese garden, an amazing zoo, a really fun
science museum, playground areas for all ages, a lake with paddle boats, and an outdoor
My Mom and Dad used to go there when they first met. I love to go to the zoo
and ride the train.
While picking up litter, some ducks followed us around. We were glad to pick up the plastic and trash that they could have eaten. It would have made them very sick.
We saw a nutria swimming in the water. I thought it was cute, my mom thought it was gross.
We love cleaning up litter in the parks we go to, and we will do it all the time.
