Hall High School hosted a Pollinator Celebration Field Day last month for 190 fifth- and eighth-grade students and faculty from John F. Kennedy, Ladd and Dalzell schools. Pollinator conservation has become an integral part of the biology curriculum at Hall. Student members of the Hall Honors Biology, Envirothon and Garden Club led presentations, lessons, activities and observations in the conservation garden. Hall received funding through grants from Trees Forever, Department of Natural Resources and Illinois Clean Energy Community Foundation to design, install and maintain a native wildflower garden, which will serve to promote the survival of pollinators. Phase one was initiated in 2017. Phase two, funded by the Illinois Clean Energy Community Foundation was initiated in 2018.
