Prairie Plants Are Superheroes!

In 2019 the endangered rusty patched bumblebee became the state bee… and prairie plants are coming to the rescue. In this course you will be a superhero too when you design a pocket prairie garden that supports pollinators, sinks carbon from the atmosphere and even acts as a rain garden for clean water. Test the soil, ecology web, and bioblitz right where you live. Hands-on activities combine art and nature play while developing skills of 4 dimensional systems thinking. Students will also be invited to share their Superhero Plant Story with their neighbors through creating a book, a grant for plants, or a mini-movie. ($10 course fee)
