Is your school or community center located in the Chattanooga metropolitan area and would you like to:
- Attract butterflies, bees and other pollinators to your schoolyard with wildflowers and native grasses.
- Add opportunities for hands-on science in biology, ecology and earth science.
- Expose individuals to healthy, outdoor physical activity.
- Reduce energy consumption and improve storm water management; enhance sustainability and green certifications.
Teachers, students, and concerned communities across the United States are expanding learning opportunities by enhancing their schoolyards and public community spaces with butterfly gardens and other pollinator habitats. These projects enrich the learning environment and provide aesthetic and environmental benefits.
By planning, establishing and maintaining such projects, they learn valuable life skills, including patience and teamwork. They can engage parents and the wider community in a project they can point to with pride for years to come.
