GreenWorks Teaches HS Students About LID Stormwater Standards

GreenWorks is preparing a master plan for Clackamas High School that identifies potential stormwater low impact development retrofit projects for Clackamas County Water Environment Services.  The purpose is to ultimately build one or more projects (such as rain gardens, green roofs, structural soils, etc.) that can visibly demonstrate the benefits of low impact development practices to students, teachers, parents and the general public. As part of the project, we are interacting with high school science classes, telling students about Low Impact Development (LID) and our specific project, as well as gathering student input on project options. Hopefully, the students will have opportunities to help with planting and long-term care of the projects.
