- EcoSchools project nets flying beauties -
 
Members of the D.M. Eagle Public School Eco-Club are trying to attract and nurture Monarch Butterflies in their neighbourhood.
 
Today (Monday, May 25th) at 1:00 p.m. the students will be joined by members of the Beach Grove Golf Club to plant a milkweed garden on the golf course. The plant draws and feeds the distinctive black, orange and white butterfly, which, in turn helps pollinate other plants. Monarch populations are a positive sign of a healthy eco-system.
 
The golf course will be commemorating the partnership with a plaque at the site of the butterfly garden.
