Our vision for Canada is… increased spaces for wildlife and an enhanced awareness of how our relationship with nature affects our everyday lives.
The Eco-Club students wanted to make their school yard more hospitable for native wildlife. They came up with the idea to build butterfly, bat, and bee houses, bird feeders and plant a pollinator garden. Students from grades 1 to 6 worked hard on designing, building and testing their houses and feeders, with the older students helping the younger ones. They also planted native pollinator plants for bees and monarch butterflies, as well as sunflower, niger, zinnias, cosmos and millet plants to use in bird feeders. Future Eco-Club members will be responsible for maintaining everything so that the work done by these student leaders will benefit their local wildlife for years to come!
