Kids in Action - June 2016
Earth Day in the Parks
St. Bruno School, Pinckneyville, Perry County
Students from St. Bruno School have been regular participants in Earth Day in the Parks events at Pyramid State Park in Pinckneyville. Sponsored by the Illinois Department of Natural Resources and the Illinois Wildlife Preservation Fund, Earth Day in the Parks events introduce students to natural resources stewardship activities that benefit wildlife. The St. Bruno students have planted thousands of native wildflowers and grasses at the park. Their work increased the diversity and number of native plants at the park to support butterflies, other pollinators and additional wildlife species.
