Native plants in the nature council ring

Orca has been transforming our playground in many ways this year. This includes an awesome nature council area in the NW corner of the play field.This is a great place for classes to meet and talk or for kids to play in a nature centered area.

We got a  grant to plant native plants in that area. Since the 3rd graders have been studying native plants, this seemed like a perfect opportunity to get these salal and sword ferns in the ground.

It turned out to be a glorious sunny day and a great experience transforming an area that will have these plants forever! It was great to have former Orca teacher & present Orca parent Laura Grow help lead this project.
