Luther Jackson: From rainy work days to full blooms

Students from Luther Jackson get wet and muddy as they plant a Magnolia virginiana.

Last school year, Lands and Waters began a very exciting partnership with Luther Jackson Middle School.  The program included watershed education, coupled with the design and planting of a native pollinator garden in the very front of the school.  Our first work day was a blast!  The rain just added to the fun.

Rudbeckia blooms dominate the landscape. They’ve been in bloom all summer and are still going strong.

Luther Jackson students have already begun to place plant identification signs in the landscape.
