Bennett David Monarch Waystation Project June 2015

Troop 91 Eagle Scout Bennett David worked with The NC Arboretum and Monarch expert Nina Veteto of Monarch Rescue to plan and install a Monarch Butterfly Waystation at the Franklin School of Innovation in Enka NC. The project is the first of 4 schools that was funded through a grant from ThermoFisher.  The Franklin School will use the garden and a pollinator meadow as part of their hands-on science curriculum. Over 180 students and 25 faculty members worked over 340 hours to prepare the site and install the Monarch Waystation. Bennett is working to encourage other scouts or troops to participate in The Scout Pollinator Garden Challenge and plant Monarch or Pollinator Gardens.
