 Mr. Pat Howard’s fifth grade class from Laurelhurst Elementary recently visited Yesler Swamp. The kids planted plant seeds that will grow into native shrubs. A walk through the swamp followed the seed planting lesson.

The children saw an active beaver lodge and spotted a blue heron. In a 30-second moment of silence, everyone heard a chorus of birds singing and an eagle’s cry.

Professor Kern Ewing and UW students Carolyn Foster and Tyler Licata taught the children about environmental restoration, why invasive species harm nature, and why it is important to replace blackberries with native plants.
