Students Promoting Environmental Awareness and Responsibility (SPEAR), with the assistance of Campus Planning and Construction and the Plant Operations Grounds Department, planted six pollinating gardens near Library Lawn this past fall. The gardens are designed to rebuild habitats for pollinators such as butterflies, birds, bats, and honey bees that stimulate the growth of plants. Funding for the gardens was provided by a Fulbright Eco-Leadership Grant, with additional support from SPEAR’s sale of crafts made from recycled materials.
