Blue Mountain High School - Schuylkill Action Students    

Wed Oct 15, 2014

In 2014, Blue Mountain Middle School was part of a project that involved retrofitting a stormwater basin into a functioning rain garden. The project spanned over 4 days, with the students planting the rain garden, planting a row a trees, and participating in various outdoor environmental activities. More recently, a stormwater swale on their campus was retrofitted to include 3 separate rain gardens. In May 2015, the eighth grade students will once again participate in 4 days of outdoor programming. They will plant the rain gardens, learn about soil biology, go on a forestry walk, hang blue bird boxes around their school, and learn about local wildlife.
