    After their 2013-14 visit to Camp Ki-Wa-Y, students from Stewart Avenue Public School in Cambridge returned to their community inspired to make a difference by creating a butterfly garden.

    students from Stewart Avenue Public School plant a butterfly gardenThe class designed and implemented a plan which included planting 28 native species such as bee balm and purple coneflower, and mulching for weed control and moisture retention.

    The garden has served not only to increase biodiversity and attract pollinators, but has also beautified the entrance to the school, benefiting the entire school community.

    Congratulations to Stewart Avenue for their amazing work in increasing biodiversity!
