Spring Mountain Elementary @ Mt. Scott Creek on 11.27.2012

School is out for the day, but not everyone from Spring Mountain Elementary is heading home.  The Green Team has gathered and they are already pulling on their boots anxious to get across the street to Mt. Scott Creek.  Thanks to their incredible job pulling invasive English Ivy last month; the creek was ready to be planted with native species!

We learned about the different plants that we were going to plant that day such as Douglas Fir, Grand Fir, Sword Fern and the favorites of the day: Western Red Cedar (Tree of Life) and Snowberry!  The students were excited to wake the plants up and give them a new home at Mt. Scott Creek.

After we finished planting, we reflected on the day and our favorite native plants:

What I like about planting plants was breathing wonderful fall air

All in all, Spring Mountain Elementary planted 103 plants! That’s unbeleafable!
