Pollinator Garden Expanded!
When you walk from our UUFNW building to the parking lot, you will now be able to smell the flowers,, view the flowering plants and observe butterflies, bees and other pollinators. Yes, our garden has been expanded thanks to the work of volunteers under the guidance of our Master Gardener, Suzi Novak on Sunday and volunteers from the congregation including the students of our RE program.
RE Students adopt a pollinator plant and observe life in the Pollinator Gardens
Our RE Director, Darlene Anderson, is putting the gardens to use in educating our students about the UUFNW Seventh Principle: “Respect for the Interdependent Web of Life”. Environmental Ministry member, Jack Kozuchowski is leading a project where the RE students will be taking measurements and recording observations of the life, growth and interdependence of nature in our pollinator gardens.
The project started on Sunday with their adopting one of the plants in the garden. They selected the plant that they will be monitoring this month. They then installed their “flags” (with the name of the the pollinator plant, a photo illustration and the name of the RE observer) at the location of their adopted plant.
Jack will be working with our students in their observations this Sunday (June 12th) and Sunday June 19th, after our services at 11:45 AM. All are invited to attend and observe.
