Yesterday, students from the high school in Dresden Bühlau met up with Wilderness International to implement their environmental school project: creating a butterfly meadow.
Where there used to be only grass, a few hours later, a long bed of wild flowers and bushes was growing.
Many thanks to Brigitte Heyduck for planning and implementing this event!
Now, the plants need to be watered and freed from weeds regularly. Wild sage, pinks, mullein and many other flowers will hopefully be attracting many butterflies throughout the summer! We are excited to see who appears first!
We are very happy that in this way, young people can contribute to the protection of biodiversity and assume responsibility for their environment. It is important for us that the students not only protect amazing forests on the other side of the planet, but that they can see the fruits of their commitment with their own eyes right at home.
Many thanks to everyone who participated and created a new habitat!
