East Norriton Middle School (Schuylkill Action Students)

In 2011, an acre of turf grass was converted to meadow, and 200 riparian buffer trees were planted along Stony Creek with TreeVitalize funding. The project restored a primary headwater stream, Stony Creek, before it flows into the Schuylkill River, by stabilizing eroding streambank, installing energy dissipaters upstream of the eroded areas, converting 1.4 acres of turf grass into deep-rooted meadow, and planting over one acre of riparian buffer.

In 2013, a streambank stabilization, bioswale, basin naturalization, and rain garden were completed with funding from the Schuylkill River Restoration Fund.
