Ming Yen helps transform a planter.

The Thurston Middle School Ecology Club this year worked on a planter rock mosaic and a bottle cap mural, which is still under construction.

The goal of the rock mosaic around succulents and native plants was to reduce water use on campus and make students more aware.

The bottle cap mural is the result of 75 hours of student work and will also create awareness about recycling.

“It’s what we love that defines us. Clearly, the students in the Ecology Club love their planet,” said club supervisor, Penny Dressler.
