Featured Schoolyard Habitat Success Stories

Follow the links below to read the stories and to see the pictures of featured Schoolyard Habitat Successes that Environmental Concern has been involved with in past years.  A variety of habitats including rain gardens, wetlands, ponds, and meadows have been designed and built with the help of teachers and students from elementary, middle, and high schools in Delaware, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Washington DC, West Virginia, and Virginia. These habitat projects help students throughout the Chesapeake Bay watershed learn about local ecology.
