Local students headed out to the woods to get their
hands dirty while saving the ecosystem.
Students from Sparta's Meadowview Middle School planted
seeds native to Monroe County prairies and forests
Students participated in the *Voluntary Habitat Improvement
Project* after the U-S Fish and Wildlife Service removed
invasive species in the area.
Organizers say the restoration project is a great
way to for kids to get some real- life hands- on education.
We went through a lot of this different stuff and
trying to get them not only engaged, but interested
in Botany and Biology and wildlife and all the rest
This is just fun stuff.
It's fun getting your hands dirty doing this.
A little more than one hundred students participated
in today's resoration efforts.
