Seventeen-year-old Centerville High School student Catherine Tollefson recently planted a Monarch Waystation at Holes Creek Park. She researched appropriate plants and reached out to native plant nurseries for donations, successfully garnering enough plant donations for the entire Waystation! The new Holes Creek Park Waystation is registered with MonarchWatch.org.
Catherine joined CWPD in the fall at BIG Backyard Party, handing out native seed packets and educating visitors about the decline of milkweed and nectar sources. She also taught a troop of Brownie Scouts to make and properly distribute milkweed seed balls. Catherine is a member of Girl Scout Troop 31488. In completing this project, she earned her Girl Scout Gold Award!
Congratulations, Catherine! We applaud your dedication to saving the pollinators!
We would like to thank Catherine, and all of our volunteers, for giving their time and talents to our community. If you are interested in becoming a volunteer please contact Community Engagement Coordinator Ginger Clark at 937-433-5155 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
