My school has a courtyard that has been home to ducks for a number of years. Every spring, students are delighted as nests are build and ducklings waddle across the yard. Then the hawks come and the smiles turn to frowns.
I've received permission from the principal to do a gardening project in the yard (some flowers, herbs for now) but during the planning, the students had asked if we can plant something that will provide hiding spots for the ducklings.
Ideas what would work well to accomplish this?
I know of many plants that will grow through the season and work for the future, but hoping for something that might also work for this season.
Thanks in advance!
