|Wetlands at North Shore|
Andrew presented his plan for developing a walkway onto the wetlands. He is working with Brian DeBest and we are looking forward to peering into those wetlands on dry boards next year! Thank you to Andrew and all those who are supporting this Eagle Scout project!
Jessica presented her plan for developing a Butterfly Way Station. She has great ideas for developing three gardens and a walkway. Ilse, a butterfly expert from Kalamazoo, was at the meeting to lend ideas and support. Having a butterfly garden will be not only be educational, but a great source of wonder and delight. We can't wait!
Cameron is also working on an Eagle Scout project. He is planning to create a seating area for students that will overlook the pond and the grassy area. Students and teachers will be able to sit outside and write, draw and work. I'm going to love that, especially when the weather gets nice!
Other dreams (to name just a few) include making the trail handicap accessible, developing a food garden, working on signage, supporting indigenous plants and continuing to lift up Liberty Hyde Bailey and his work. I feel humbled that so many amazing and talented people came out to the meeting on Tuesday. It reminds me that we are on the right track. Thank you!
