Kids in Action - February 2018
Schoolyard Habitat Action Grant
Lincoln-Way Central High School, New Lenox
The outdoor classroom project was designed and implemented by students participating in Lincoln-Way Central High School’s Environmental Action Club and Science Club. It is surrounded by the school’s native prairie. The project created an outdoor space to model the importance of using native plants in a landscape setting and provided a location for hands-on scientific exploration. This area is accessible to all students at the high school who are learning in a classroom or participating in science-based activities.
