Students from Beville Middle School in Dale City visited Leesylvania State Park to work on a conservation project.
According to Beville science teacher Patty Kramolisch, around 400 students took part in the school’s International Baccalaureate design project, to plant seeds on 3.75 acres at the park.
“Our students are investigating the watershed and we’re so happy to be here, helping the pollinators, planting native species,” said Kramolisch.
According to Park Ranger Sarah Percival the Garden Club of Virginia provided a $5,000 grant to help students fund the project.
“They’re going on hikes, they’re going to the Visitor’s Center, they’re going to the pond,” said Percival.
