Schoolyard habitat Projet at Cambridge-Narrows Community School
Jack Layton Award | Honourable Mention
All local habitats are preserved
Students at Cambridge-Narrows Community School worked together to create a schoolyard habitat project. Children of all ages, from Kindergarten to grade 12 worked collaboratively to clean-up the schoolyard, design the new schoolyard and build raised flower bed boxes, benches, and bird and bat houses. From these efforts, the school community was able to create a space for bats to repopulate, birds to nest, and for the students to grow organic, heritage vegetables.
