From left, Heather Baker and Hannah Woods, of the Missoula Children’s Theatre, play excitable canines during their interactive performance Monday of ‘Water, Water Everywhere’ at Warren Elementary School, kicking off the 2010 Adopt-A-Species program. The program was created 14 years ago by Carla Wambach, pictured far right, to increase students’ understanding of ecosystems and appreciation of the natural world through the study of Montana wildlife species and their habitat. ‘We love being able to get out of our regular routines where we entertain as well as teach,’ said Baker of her tour with Woods, playing otters, dogs and detectives, to area elementary schools. The play preceeded the unveiling of Warren School’s surprise adopted wildlife species for the year, the black bear. The students will now study and learn about the black bear throughout the school year using information found in a traveling trunk.
