At West End Memorial School in Nova Scotia, students came together to protect native wildlife in their community by building habitats to help bees and bats to thrive. The project was a success, providing enough bee houses and bat boxes to distribute amongst students, as well as several for the local community garden, Springhill Communities in Bloom Committee, the Amherst Women’s Shelter, The All Saints Springhill Hospital, and the High-Crest Senior Living Community.
« This project made me more aware of how bees live and what they have to do to survive. »
