Student volunteers then drove the massive garlands (20′ tall strands) and hung them in the window of the Knowledge Center at UNR with spectacular results.

Over 300 Reno High School students recycled vinyl records into colorful pinwheels. Notice the old paint cans and repurposed PVC pipes holding the records!

Before a fabulous career in teaching, Miss Molly got to make molds of the Colombian Mammoth burial site. She kept those molds and we hooked up with a former student- Teddy of CrafTed (concrete extraordaire) and cast a vertebrae. The intention being to make a bench for the Gerlach School to enjoy.
