The Prescott Valley Charter School's Youth Chamber opened its long-awaited Schoolyard Habitat on May 21 before a standing-room-only audience. The garden, a Learn and Serve-funded project, is located at 9500 Lorna Lane, behind the high school's main academic building. The project took a full year to complete.

The club's Green Flag team - made up of Jaime Glisson, Luc Hawkes, Ryan Linzbach, and Berrett Sears, with support from other students, faculty, and numerous community partners - constructed the garden.

It includes a wide walking path, various shrubs and bushes, a garden of petunias, a bird sanctuary, a teaching platform, and many places to sit and enjoy nature.

The habitat is meant to be a quiet area for meditation and study, to serve as a teaching area for Service Learning, Biology, and other curricula, and it is available for special events.

The garden was the place Friday for the Open House and the Youth Chamber annual Awards Ceremony.

At the ceremony, Youth Chamber President Tyler Sanderson received the Joeseff Bowman Leadership Award from Mr. Joe Bowman, himself.

The Youth Chamber and its Faculty Advisor, Mr. Bill Suedmeyer, wish to thank the many community supporters who helped with the project, including Common Ground Landscaping (Mr. Frank Abbott, Matt Abbott); Watters' Garden Center (Ken Lain); Jay's Bird Barn (Eric Moore); Home Depot (Ron Straka); PV Tribune (Heidi Dahms Foster); and Wal-Mart (Iron Springs store).

The students also want to thank friends and school administrators, Dr. John Atkinson and Mrs. Connie Reveile.

"Their support and encouragement were invaluable," said Suedmeyer.
