This November over forty-five Algoma, Wisconsin middle school students learned about the importance of pollinators and pollinator habitat. Biologists from the Green Bay Field Office and Pheasants Forever began the morning by teaching students about various pollinator species, their importance, and habitat needs. Next, students planted their own pollinator garden on school grounds by broadcasting a diverse native seed mix over a prepared area. The students researched each species prior to the planting and are looking forward to watching their garden grow. The Service’s Partners for Fish and Wildlife Program provided financial and technical assistance. Pheasants Forever provided additional technical assistance.
