The native wildflower seeds were collected and donated by community member "Dr. Goose," also known as Jim Battagin.
Plumas Unified Outdoor Education Coordinator Rob Wade shared a special day with our Kindergartners and 1st graders at Quincy Elementary as they planted native wildflower seeds in the school garden, marking the Spring Equinox. This hands-on experience not only beautifies the campus but also provides our students with invaluable lessons in ecology, responsibility, and the joys of gardening.
