Chester students gather to help restore local meadow habitat

Chester Elementary School second-, third-, fourth-, and fifth-graders, accompanied by juniors from Chester High School, participate in the STRAW project in Swain Meadow on Oct. 12-13. STRAW (Students and Teachers Restore a Watershed) focuses on restoring meadow habitat through planting willows and building beaver dams.

It’s time to get wet and dirty as Chester students get to work with meadow restoration. Photo submitted
