Grants and Contracts Details
There is a wonderful opportunity to develop a school-wide, interdisciplinary, waterfocused education program at Millcreek Elementary School by restoring stream and wetlands habitats around the free-flowing, meandering creek on the school grounds. This enhanced outdoor classroom will form the basis for environmental education in an urban setting. The outdoor classroom will help the environment by improving water quality and increasing aquatic and terrestrial habitats in and along the stream. Each habitat will be constructed using the latest technologies in partnership with the National Center of Excellence in Wetland and Stream Restoration, and will require a minimum of maintenance. Through the educational program, the creation of student Water Ambassadors, and the professional development of teachers and PTA volunteers, the entire community will benefit from the program.
