Best of Hoffman April

The Environmental Club from MacArthur School has made a positive impact in our community and epitomizes The Best of Hoffman.

This past fall, they reached out to the park district about the possibility of teaming together to build a butterfly garden outside of their school to help protect the Monarch Butterfly species.  The park district was excited to work with the Environmental Club and advocate for positive change within the local environment. After discussion, it was agreed that the butterfly garden would be located on the west side of MacArthur School, just north of the playground.  The Environmental Club jumped into action and began planting fescue seeds, pollinator plants and butterfly weed.  The students also designed the sign that will be placed at the butterfly garden.
