For the 2013-2014 school year HAVENS Project is working with students at the Hagerman schools to restore native plants to disturbed areas on public lands. Students have the opportunity to select native plant species, grow these plants in the school greenhouse with the help of local experts, and restore local ecosystems through transplantation of greenhouse seedlings.
The seed island will provide for restoration and education, serving as a future source of native plant seeds as well as functioning as an interpretive garden.
At this time HAVENS Project only provides classroom enrichment programs for the Hagerman School District, however, it is our hope that in the near future we will have the necessary resources to expand our programming to include other schools in the Magic Valley area. HAVENS Project does provide education programs on-site at the Hagerman Fossil Beds National Monument upon request, as well as presenting to special interest and service groups throughout Idaho. Please contact HAVENS Project or the Hagerman Fossil Beds to learn more, or to request a program.
