South Haven Elementary School Getting A Pollinator Garden

Lincoln Elementary School in South Haven is preparing to do its part to protect the ecosystem. The school is installing a pollinator garden, which will give budding young botanists a chance to grow. Lincoln Elementary teachers will be out with students installing the garden this week, and it should be done Thursday. Stepping stones will be installed for students to make up-close observations of the plants, and teachers say the students will have the chance to observe the cycle of life there. Most of the plants flower in the spring or the fall, with just enough summer plants to maintain attractions for the pollinators. The pollinator garden was made possible after a community partnership was established between a few teachers and the South Haven Garden Club. Midwest Energy and Communications is also supporting the project with a Strengthening Schools Grant.
