Blue Bridge Agile Learning Center


Project Description

We transformed an old drainage area into usable outdoor classroom and play space. We added native plants that will filter the stormwater runoff before it returns to the watershed. The students studied the water flow, the native plants, and playground safety.

Fostering Lifelong Stewardship

The children have increased awareness of the plants and animals that live in our natural space. The children see the benefits as a previously flooded area has transformed into a play space.
