List of awards
Students in the Botany and Field Biology classes at Raymore-Peculiar High School have created a Monarch Waystation in the outdoor classroom.
Developed over two years, the Monarch Waystation provides a milkweed garden for caterpillars and a restored prairie of native pollinating plants for adult monarchs to use during summer and migration.
Ray-Pec Field Biology students were able to experience the wonder of the fall Monarch migration as it passed through the outdoor classroom on Tuesday, Oct. 8, 2019. Many Monarchs were captured and released, and 18 were tagged as part of a citizen science project coordinated through Monarch Watch at the University of Kansas. The students' observation of the migration was also recorded on the Journey North website. This video is from Oct. 8:
A display about the project was included at the Missouri School Boards' Association annual conference Sept. 26-29 at Lake of the Ozarks. Teacher Mike Roberts and Student Emily Behymer told attendees about the project.
This video shows the development of the project from 2017 to 2019. The video was presented in September 2019 at the Missouri School Boards' Association conference.
