Terracing in Butterfly Meadow for Butterfly Plants

Peter Galligan
Troop 176, Fremont


The purpose of my project was to finish the terracing in Butterfly Meadow, at Tyson Lagoon. In addition, I added several plants to the area, added in a sprinkling system, and will attend to them and make sure they grow. There were very few problems with implementing the project. We ended up putting in fewer plants, since we were able to leave many of the original plants in the area unaffected. It took 3, 3 hour work days to finish everything.

I would like to thank a few people for this project: The Math and Science Nucleus for allowing me to work at Tule Ponds at Tyson Lagoon, and for their donations. I would also like to thank Neal Shah, Adam Shawen, Ryan Raskop, Varun Sethi, and Andrew Galligan for all their help in making this project successful
