Students in the Botany and Field Biology classes at Raymore-Peculiar High School have created a Monarch Waystation in the outdoor classroom on the campus.
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.
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 work.
The video linked below shows the development of the project from 2017 to 2019. Teacher Mike Roberts is leading the project.
