About this Grantee

Mr. Schnowske, Ms. Alcott, and Mr. Bank collaborate with a landscape architect to provide a hands-on environmental biology experience for emotionally disabled students at Plainfield High School. Students research plants and meet with the architect and community leaders to plan, design, and create a community landscape. After deciding on a site and selecting plants for the landscape, students develop a cost analysis for the project, make scale drawings of the site, and present their design to the community.
