A few weeks ago, one of our dear Facebook fans shared the link to a website for the film "A Simple Question." Here's how the website describes the film:.

“A Simple Question: the Story of STRAW” is an inspiring 35 minute film that tells the story of the Bay Institute’s STRAW Project (Students and Teachers Restoring a Watershed).

In 1992, Laurette Rogers’ 4th grade class asked her what they could do to save endangered species? It was a simple question that would change their lives. Partnering with ranchers, scientists, government agencies, and schools, this remarkable project has led to the restoration of 20 miles of habitat for the endangered California freshwater shrimp. In the process it galvanized community and prompted significant educational innovations by connecting classrooms with nature. The STRAW program serves as testimony to the importance of empowering children, which in turn transforms us all.

Take a few minutes to watch the 2 minute trailer below for an inspiring sneak-peek at the film!
