Robeson Elementary Center (Schuylkill Action Students)

Berks Nature worked with Robeson Elementary Center to eliminate mowing from a 2.6 acre area of the campus. The area was reseeded with native seeds and planted with native trees and shrubs. Addtionally, blacktop was removed from a 1,200 square foot area of the parking lot and graded to collect stormwaterrunoff. An 800 square foot pollinator garden was also added to the site. These projects absorb and infiltrate stormwater running off into an unnamed tributary of the Hay Creek.
