Pottsgrove High School (Schuylkill Action Students)

The Partnership for the Delaware Estuary and Montgomery County Conservation District partnered to retrofit a failing rain garden into an improved bioretention area, filled with native shrubs.  School district maintenance staff completed construction under the direction of the District Watershed Specialist.  Then, the Partnership for the Delaware Estuary teamed up with a science teacher to lead students in planting the garden.  Funding was provided through a grant from 3M, awarded to the Partnership for the Delaware Estuary.
