Pinewood Middle School


Project Description:
Pinewood Middle School’s seventh-grade class enhanced an existing rain garden with help from Plaster Creek Stewards by weeding, adding mulch, and adding more plants. The purpose of the rain garden is to filter runoff from a nearby parking lot.

Fostering Lifelong Stewardship:
Students now understand the role of native plants in filtering out pollutants.
