Today we had a visit from Nikita Coulter from the Heritage Council and the Louth County Council. She discussed the Eco Tribe competition with us and informed us that this year's theme was pollinating gardens. She showed us lots of different pollinating plants and insects like the butterfly and the bumble bee. We discussed various varieties of bee and looked at their life cycle in great detail. Then we went out into the school grounds and Nikita showed us the best areas for a pollinating garden around the school. We used a quadrant to identify and count local plant and flower species.
Use natural cleaning products where you can. It's better for the environment, people and animals because there are no harmful chemicals.
Carpool when possible if you come to school by car.
Recycle old material. You could use it for art projects or quilting.
