We’ve planted over 120 new trees so far, with a 97% survival rate. Completed projects include trees along the track, trees along the fire lane, an elm grove, an oak grove, completion of a storage shed for room A-2, flower beds near the bike entrance, a Japanese garden near A-4, four shaded outdoor classroom areas, a succulent garden, a Boulder garden, and much more. Current projects include adding trees to the Oak Grove and improving its flower beds, irrigation of the succulent garden, propagation of certain plant species, and more.
