This project will help to enhance the beauty of Black Mountain Elementary School. It is part of the Environmental Awareness/Impact Project required of students enrolled in a C.D. Owen High School Earth/Environmental Science Honors course taught by Mr. Mallory. A goal of the project is to minimize maintenance and maintenance-related emissions. With the cooperation of the Black Mountain Elementary School PTO, Principal Bossert and Mr. Mallory, Noah Hollady will research, develop, coordinate and implement landscaping and beautification of the school campus.
Under the direction of Bo Mallory, the students of the Spring 2015 Earth/Environmental Science class will research, develop, coordinate and implement landscaping at the Warhorses & Warlassies entrance to OHS. They will use locally sold and/or produced materials to highlight native and/or endangered species while promoting a natural, low maintenance “Go Green” solution that uses less water and/or attracts helpful insects. The project will be counted toward efforts for OHS to become a certified North Carolina Green School.
After the students complete their projects, we will be showcasing the new landscapes here.
We really enjoyed going back to school and it brought out the kid in all of us...
