A Frozen Day at Beaver Creek

Sam Barlow High School @ Beaver Creek

Sam Barlow High School braved the cold and flurries this week all in the name of native plants!  After spending majority of the fall months removing invasive blackberry bushes from around Beaver Creek, students finally got to put plants in the ground and see how far their restoration efforts had come!   A short crash-course in winter-twig identification gave students the chance to learn the difference between opposite and alternate bud arrangement and a few of the native plants of Oregon.  Students then raced to plant native trees and shrubs before they got too frozen in the cold.  Overall Sam Barlow planted 100 native plants!  Great Job Sam Barlow students and hopefully next time it will be a tad warmer at Beaver Creek 😉
