PEP plants for pollinators

Juniors Sonja Henze plants a plant with the help of another PEP member.

Members of People for Environmental Protection gathered with a few other students on Tuesday to plant a pollinator garden behind the track. PEP spent the last year meeting with Upper School Council, administers, and the grounds crew to make the pollinator garden happen.

Sophomore Nikolas Liepins said, “Our planting today was a wonderful way to mark the culmination of everyone’s hard work leading up to this point. We started talks about implementing a pollinator garden last school year, and we’ve finally achieved our goal. Really, it just feels great to be able to see all of our dedication in the flesh, and it’s awesome that we all got to share that experience.”
