NatureScape Green Initiative at Middle Schools

NatureScape Education Days were held at Bair, William Dandy and Coral Springs Middle Schools during October and November.  An assortment of native plants were installed to create wildlife-friendly schoolyard habitats.  These new habitats serve as outdoor classrooms and provided a setting for presentations on NatureScapes, water, climate change, and recycling during the Education Days.
