Students at Brighton School, a private school in Mountlake Terrace with students from all over the area, were recently recognized by the National Wildlife Federation (NWF) for creating a “Certified Wildlife Habitat” after transforming their school’s garden.

Middle school students in the school’s leadership class worked to develop the garden. Sixth, seventh and eighth graders planted vegetation and created a habitat for hummingbirds and sweat bees, a bee species that is a native pollinator in the Mountlake Terrace area.

The NWF certification recognizes Brighton School for creating a garden space that improves habitat for birds, butterflies and other wildlife by providing essential elements needed by all wildlife, including natural food sources, clean water, cover and places to raise young.
