Schoolyard or Community Restoration Project
Restoration projects are conducted on the schoolyard or in the community. These projects include wildlife habitat restoration, meadows, raingardens or community stormwater management projects with the Anne Arundel County Department of Public Works.
Teachers and students participate in assessing the schoolyard, design, growing the plants for the project at the greenhouse, writing a grant for funding (usually Chesapeake Bay Trust) and then planting and maintaining the restoration project. All of the projects are planted with native plants and serve to help mitigate stormwater runoff.
