Nurturing nature
LEMS-- Science Club
Twenty-eight students from the Lugoff-Elgin Middle School Science Club were active participants in the Nature Trail Project, a field experience. Focusing on the role of butterflies and hummingbirds as pollinators in the Sandhills ecosystem, students – including (from left) Jaylin Smith, Lauren Chandler and Megan Huntley -- worked to help establish wildflower plantings along trails located on the McCrady Training Center in Eastover. In partnership with the University of South Carolina, Clemson University, USDA Natural Resources Conservations Service and S.C. Department of Natural Resources, the planting mix for the vegetation plots were developed.
