Native Plants with Cascade High School

In a new program, WRI is working with the Plant Science class at Cascade High School to help design and develop a native plant garden on the hill side on the WRI campus. Currently, there are four 12'x6' plots and students can plant up to 8 species in each plot. The group of 11th and 12th grade students learn more about plant biodiversity, native plants, how to perform site evaluations, and which plants may grow better together. The students will design, plant, and manage the garden throughout the year, gaining community service hours to place towards graduation, college applications, and more. Stay tuned for updates as the garden continues to develop.
