The Vandalia Community High School Agriculture/Horticulture Department worked to create a butterfly garden on the school grounds. Besides increasing the butterfly habitat available, they also will use this area for hands-on lab activities for their school lessons. Students were responsible for all aspects of the project, including educating the community about its benefits. Many butterfly and other pollinator species will benefit.
