Madeline English STEM Club to create pollinator meadow

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Eighth-graders in the STEM Club at the Madeline English School, in concert with Conservation Agent Thomas Philbin, are using seed tubes to grow low and tall grasses as well as wildflowers. The tubes – built by the students – allow the seeds to retain water and hold the grasses in place. In addition to planting the grass, the students spread meadow seed at Rivergreen Park before placing fiber mats over the top and staking them. This is done to stabilize the steep bank to retain moisture and prevent erosion. Planting these different seeds will ultimately result in the creation of a pollinator meadow.
