Over 40 students came out to volunteer on a Saturday to build the wetland. They were enthusiastic to learn how to measure the wetland basin using the construction level and re-flag the site after the bobcat removed a lot of soil. The students helped rake the basin once the bobcat was finished removing soil.

This is what the Garvey school looked like immediately after construction:

We look forward to sharing photos of the wetland once the rains come and fill it!
