The Native Plant Study Group presents:

Thursday, April 16, 2015 at 7pm

Education includes Native Plants at Strawberry Vale School
with Lenny Ross

Since 1989, students and teachers at Strawberry Vale have created a native plant garden, a vernal pond, and two Douglas Fir/Garry Oak ecosystem preservation zones in their neighbourhood. Through restoration efforts the school, students, families and staff have developed a strong environmental stewardship program. This presentation will review the history of these programs, how working with native plants provides high quality learning opportunities, and explore future potential for the school.
