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.
