Students add pollinator habitat near Lakewalk
The local Pheasants Forever chapter, along with Duluth East High School students, have teamed up to create a pollinator habitat between the school and the Lakewalk. A pollinator habitat is an area with plants and other environmental aspects that attracts pollinators like butterflies. The one at East High School is designed for the specific site and will be beautify the area as well as serve as a learning tool for the students.
"This location will be designed to favor the attraction, survival and reproduction of pollinators, as well as providing a monarch weigh station along the butterfly's migration path," said David Lood, youth director of Pheasants Forever of St. Louis/Carlton County.
