Restoring Native Plants
Kanab High School with Grand Staircase Escalante National Monument, UT
Students from Kanab High School, located near Grand Staircase Escalante National Monument (GSENM) in Utah, spent the Fall of 2012 collecting seeds from a native plant species and grew seedlings during the winter in their greenhouse. When Spring came, the students weeded out invasive plant species at GSENM and planted the drought-tolerant native plant seedlings they had grown to restore wildlife habitat. GPS/GIS devices allowed students to map the location of plants and monitor their survival. Download Teacher Guide here.
