        Restoring Native Plants | This American Land

         

        Students from Kanab High School, located near Grand Staircase Escalante National Monument (GSENM) in Utah, spent the Fall of 2012 collecting seeds from a native plant species and grew seedlings during the winter in their greenhouse. When Spring came, the students weeded out invasive plant species at GSENM and planted the drought-tolerant native plant seedlings they had grown to restore wildlife habitat. GPS/GIS devices allowed students to map the location of plants and monitor their survival.
