Saving Endangered Species

By Kelsie Hemphill

Mrs. Overgaards 7th period environmental studies class, and friends, headed to BLM land to plant bitter brush among other pollinating plants in hopes of helping an endangered species of plant only grown in that area. It was a cold day and the work was’t easy, but the view they got to see all day, and the satisfaction that they were doing something that could be preserving an endangered species made the day all the better. Stocked with a shovel, some plants, and other necessary items to help the plant, they split up into groups of 2 or 3 and set to work planting over 350 pollinating plants. After hard work for hours, a quick lunch break was taken, and then they set back out on the task of finishing the last few. At the end of the day, 372 pollinating plants had been scattered around a hillside or 2 and Mrs. Overgaards class got to say that they started off their thanksgiving break being thankful for such a great opportunity to make a difference.
