Hudson Prairie Participate In Pollinator Planting

Hudson Prairie Elementary School 5th grade students participated in a Pollinator Habitat planting event sponsored by Pheasants for Forever. This program aims to increase awareness about declining pollinator populations, educate the general public on the importance of habitat for pollinators, and establish quality pollinator habitats across the country. Volunteers from Trout Unlimited and the St. Croix Valley Beekeepers Association also participated in the event to share with students the importance of native plants to healthy river systems and the important role bees play in our ecosystem. Students planted native prairie plants in order to help establish a healthy pollinator habitat.

What an ideal place – at Hudson Prairie Elementary!
