The team’s entry ‘Get to know our greenway!’ examined, identified and audited the wildflowers growing on the local Greenway. This was done with the intention of producing a display that could be used by the community to help them notice and appreciate the “weeds” growing there and realise the beauty of these species. The girls also wanted to see if the Greenway is a healthy environment as regards air pollution. They are now looking forward to seeing the very many other projects that will be on display from around the country from like-minded students who are encouraging youth eco-action.
