A huge thank you to the almost 500 students and community members came together in June to plant 2500 native flowers and grasses.
Wondering what the restoration might look like? Check out the before images (slider to the left), and after renderings (slider to the right) below. The first is an aerial view of the entire school forest. The second is looking north into the forest from Purgatory Creek Park. The third is from the same location, but looking south.
