Grand River Prep High School


Project Description:
Students selected an area on school property to turn into a native plant garden to reduce surface water runoff and create a biodiverse habitat for local pollinator species. Students worked with the Kent Conservation district to select plants, remove grass, and plant several varieties of native plants.

Fostering Lifelong Stewardship:
Students have become ambassadors for the importance of local plants, sharing their understanding of native plants with teachers and students around the school.
