Scenic Heights School Forest Restoration

Welcome to the Scenic Heights School Forest Restoration! This project will restore a healthy ecosystem in the school forest, one that promotes clean water in nearby Purgatory Creek, and provides habitat for wildlife.

PROJECT UPDATES

Gravel_Bed_Planting_2.jpgTrees are in at the gravel bed nursery! The nursery was built by a local Eagle Scout. The trees will grow all summer and then become a part of a buffer around the pond in the school forest this fall.

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.
