The Seward Phoenix Log - News of the Eastern Kenai Peninsula since 1966


Kids and plants help each other grow


The Schoolyard Habitat project is accepting volunteers to the front of Seward Elementary School into a native plant park; complete with new pathways, benches and picnic tables.

Resurrection Bay Conservation Alliance is coordinating the project for all three of Seward public schools. By involving youth in local habitat restoration programs, they can learn key science concepts and get involved with planning and creating special schoolyard and community projects.

During the first week of June, the project needs adult volunteers to complete the garden prep work; add topsoil, place weed-block fabric and edging, and spread wood chips and pathway gravel. The following week, during the afternoons, all area youth are invited to help the Boys & Girls Club, and summer school kids plant the garden!

To volunteer, either send an email to or call Matt Gray at 224-4621.

The project is supported by Kenai Peninsula School District, U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service, Seward Community Foundation, Seward Boys & Girls Club and RBCA.
