Harmony Habitats
South Allegheny Elementary

We are grateful to the following people who donated money, time, or materials to our habitats.

You can sponsor a program for the upcoming Harmony Habitats school year. We would announce the speaker or activity you would sponsor.
The programs range from $50. -$200.
We have had speakers from Community College, The Outdoor Classroom, and the Audubon Society of Western PA. 

The school district also cannot afford to participate in the Carnegie Museum Educational Loan Program. That program is $200./yr.  We used to borrow materials to use in bird identification, tracking, PA wildlife study, and plant study. You can also sponsor that service for one year.
E-mail me if you are interested. aaubrecht@southallegheny.org
