As a rural school with significant access to green space, it is important to do our part to support wild pollinator populations by creating habitat for them. It is also important to get youth involved in projects that show them how they can create real positive change in the world. This project will help them to cultivate systems thinking in how they approach human-nature relationships.
As a parent run community school we are excited to become a Bee School! This type of engagement with real world issues is what we try to foster within our school curriculum. Becoming a Bee School would help our students understand the importance of pollinators in all of our lives and to be a part of helping to make sure our local pollinator population has a chance to thrive.
