Mountain View Makes a Difference

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Mountain View Middle School students worked hard this week at Beaverton Creek Tributary in Aloha to plant nearly 100 native trees and plants along the waterway.  The students in Trevis Karper’s classes came out a few weeks ago and cleared out a huge patch of invasive blackberry at the back of site.  This week, students were able to recall the qualities of native and invasive plants, which is captured in the video below.

Students planted wetland species such as pacific willow, edge species like thimbleberry and other hearty natives like red osier dogwood.  They also took initiative to clear out trash and other debris from the stream as they planted; well done Mountain View!
