Students from Mountain View Middle School joined SOLV this week to plant over 100 native trees and shrubs. The 7th graders in Trevis Karper’s classes were able to recall all the benefits of native planting for the ecosystem, such as cooling stream temperatures, preventing soil erosion and creating habitat for native birds and other animals.
Chloe, an eighth grade student from Rachel Carson Environmental Middle School showed students proper planting technique and then students dug in to plant several wetland loving species. Students planted spirea, twinberry, willow and other wetland plants. Way to dig in, Mountain View!
