FHS goes drought resistant

When you walk around campus near the science wing you might notice some exciting changes.

Fillmore High School has taken up the banner of landscaping with California native drought resistant plants.

Thanks to Michael Glenn from U.S. Fish and Wildlife, we were able to purchase a little more than 40 plants, and he was able to show students which ones should be planted to take advantage of the sun or need more shade, which ones attract Monarch butterflies, etc. He also showed Ms. Huxtable’s students how to plant correctly. The plants that are now part of our landscape include Toyon, Black Sage, White Sage, two different types of native sunflowers, rye grass, and more. A HUGE THANK YOU to Ms. Huxtable for creating a beautiful landscape for all to enjoy.
