C. A. Frost ESA Elementary


Project Description:
Students designed a bioswale to manage the flow of stormwater from the CA Frost parking lots. The water will now drain into the dry stream bed and then to the rain garden instead of the playground. They also added native plants to the meadow in order to reduce non-point source pollution into Brandywine Creek. Lastly, students added native pollinating plants to the school vegetable garden in order to increase biodiversity.

Fostering Lifelong Stewardship:
The students are proud of the work they completed, and have a greater appreciation for their community and the ecosystem that surrounds it.
