Kids in Action - December 2016
Schoolyard Habitat Action Grant
Nature Walk Montessori School, Round Lake
When Nature Walk Environmental School was recently built, the environment was disturbed leading to water runoff that is causing problems on the school grounds. Students were invited to turn this problem into an opportunity to make a positive difference in their world. They constructed a rain garden to capture the water runoff, help restore the land and attract wildlife. The rain garden was also designed to provide beneficial habitat for amphibians, birds and insects.
