Jackson Site Plan (no labels)

Schoolyard greening project focusing on ecological and human health. My school site was Jackson Elementary in Altadena, CA. The site is located just south of the San Gabriel Mountains, a mile away from the Arroyo Seco, and within 1500' of the 210 freeway. My goal was to "Connect children to nature through a greener schoolyard that supports environmental education, physical health, and overall well-being" by mitigating urban heat island in the schoolyard and creating a vibrant, active atmosphere.
