Raingarden and Stormwater Grant Awarded

We are pleased to announce that we were awarded a Schuylkill River Restoration Fund grant for raingardens and stormwater management in our parking lot.  This will allow us to improve water quality in the Pickering Creek watershed, create new native plant and animal habitat, make our parking area safer, and educate our students, families and the public. We will have a wonderful new area for Outdoor Learning once it is completed.

Donald Pell Gardens is slated to begin construction in October 2021.
