CALC students help plant for clean water

rob loucks

On a sunny March afternoon while getting a preview of summer weather, CALC students joined Kellyn, the Water Resources Technician at Clean Water Services, for a day of planting and learning.

Half of the students planted native plugs along the Fernhill Wetlands while the other group planted in three different spots to test the success of varying planting techniques.

After all the plants were in the ground, students lead a plant identification walk around the wetlands culminating in a fast paced ID game which had competitors racing to correctly identify the leaf, twig or flower.

When the day was done, students were gifted a seed ball that they could throw into the wetland to help keep this special land healthy.
