A butterfly garden, monarch watch station and a bluebird habitat were a few of the exhibits Kiser Intermediate students showcased during Backyard Science Night on Thursday.

More than 250 attendees met at the Lincolnton school to show support for the learning areas created, with the help of educators from the N.C. Museum of Natural Sciences in Raleigh, along with the school staff who helped create the additions to the school.

Strategies for parents to use their own yards as a space for learning about the natural world was another goal of the night, said Linda Yoder, Science Lead Teacher.

Students seemed to like the birding stations and native plant identification areas the most, Yoder told the Times-News after the event, while the science teacher most enjoyed watching parents and students learning together.
