Erosion and invasive species can be harmful to a watershed because it can destroy soil and use large amounts of water.
In Colorado, Canadian Thistle and Russian Olive can completely replace a natural species. Bees can help these problems as they help pollinate native species which decreases the invasive species in the area.
Their project was to create a bee garden that would help increase the population of bees near their school. Meghan, Riley and Kelden created a 20×8 foot garden behind their school in Berthoud that contained perennial bee friendly plants. The resulting garden should increase the bee population in the area while increasing native plants.
