We had a great time yesterday in Montegut! Over 400 of our Bald Cypress and Swamp Red Maple trees were planted. Special thanks to our STM teachers, Pam Blanchard from LSU, Christina Kogos from Voice of the Wetlands, and Shane Granier and his Wildlife and Fisheries crew! More pictures will be posted soon! Read the comments under this post to hear more from our students.

We checked on our trees one last time before break. Each student chose a Swamp Red Maple and Baldcypress tree to measure, fertilize, weed and monitor. They will keep track of this information and then check on them again in the Fall!

Our seedlings have sprouted! We went out and took a look at the new Swamp Red Maple and Bald Cypress seedlings in our can yard. We talked about the importance of having only one seedling per yellow cell, so that the seedling would have the most nutrients and the best chance of survival. Tomorrow we'll give them a bit of fertilizer for an extra boost!
