North Tonawanda Middle School Students Started their own pollinator garden!
On May 5, 2022, approximately 100 eighth grade middle school students from Mr. Lockett's science classes all contributed to building a pollinator garden right outside their classroom. After learning earlier in the week about pollinators and how important they are to maintaining healthy, resilient ecosystems, students got to put their knowledge to use planning, preparing, and planting their garden. Every student had the opportunity to dig a hole, fill it with good soil and plant a native plant.
As part of the Niagara River Greenway Youth Stewardship program, these students will continue to help maintain the garden by watering and weeding. When the garden is fully established science classes will be able to utilize the garden as an outdoor observation lab, identifying pollinators and plants.
