Monarchs Are Coming To Zilker!

Our school has received a grant from the National Wildlife Federation, and we are so excited to announce that we will be building a monarch garden! This will take place in the grassy area between the kindergarten and 5th grade hallways. In order to ensure the success of this habitat, we need your help! At this time, we are in need of the following items:

  • large, broken-down cardboard
  • gardening soil
  • pebble rock
  • water hoses
  • 4 inch river rock
  • 2 foot by 4 foot large stone boulders
  • gardening tools/watering cans

If you are able to donate any of these items, please bring them in as soon as possible to Miss Phillips’ room 401! (If they are large, we can find a spot in the garden to store them.)

Please join us Saturday, October 14 from 8:00am- 11:00am, when we will be breaking ground and prepping our habitat site! We are in the beginning stages of this amazing project, and as we get farther in our planning, more information will be available. Stayed tuned for updates! If you have any questions, feel free to contact madison.phillips@austinisd.org or patricia.russell@austinisd.org. Thank you for the support!

Zilker is a great place for butterflies!–
