Get a new green space for your schoolyard! RiverSmart Schools offers funding, support, and innovative greening projects for your group’s environmental service learning projects. RiverSmart Schools’ projects focus on habitats, wildlife, water conservation, native plants, and retaining and filtering storm runoff. The schoolyard garden will serve as a means for your group to learn about environmental conservation and ecological awareness, as well as acquire gardening skills and build school pride.  Schools interested in participating should fill out the application online for consideration.
