Kids In Action - November 2015
Schoolyard Habitat Action Grant
Trico Elementary School, Campbell Hill, Jackson County
Students of grades four and five planted a butterfly garden on the school grounds at Trico Elementary School in Campbell Hill. Their actions will assist all students in the school in learning about the stages of the butterfly life cycle, the butterflies that can be found in Illinois, pollination, changes over time and how human actions can benefit wildlife. This project was developed with the support of a Schoolyard Habitat Action Grant from the Illinois Department of Natural Resources, US. Fish and Wildlife Service’s Partners for Fish and Wildlife and Illinois Conservation Foundation.
