New Native Garden Coming to Parliament Place

Parliament Place Elementary School will soon be the home of a new native garden, thanks to a partnership with Seatuck Environmental Association. Seatuck presented an educational program to the third graders at Parliament Place to teach them about native gardens and how they impact the environment. Seatuck takes a multi-pronged approach to its education program and looks to connect lessons back to the environment. The organization works with schools to help reimagine their outdoor space and teach students about the many benefits of having a native garden. Students learn about the plants, insects and birds and understand their importance during lessons that take place right outside their classroom.
