Idaho Native Plants

December 8, 2017 - 4:48pm -- Raptors

Today our class got to plant native seeds in trays for planting in the Fall. We were joined by Sean Finn of the Golden Eagle Audubon Society and Kristin Gnojewski.

They brought Showy Goldeneye, Yellow Beeplant, Munro's Globemallow, Rabbit Brush,  and Antelope Bitterbrush seeds. Everyone had the opportunity to plant and then we set the trays outside our classroom. We had to protect them from the birds and the squirrles, so Sean wrapped the trays in chicken wire. We will be watching for new growth in the Spring. Next school year, 4th graders will plant these at the Warm Springs Park that is located behind our school.
