Project Update- Greystone Elementary Outdoor Classroom

Back in 2011, Cawaco awarded Greystone Elementary School a grant to develop an outdoor classroom.  This first phase of the project allowed them to purchase native plants and trees, create a rain garden, and  install a pond.  They also bought a cistern to collect rainwater off the roof of the school to water the plants. This saves the school a lot of money, and it helps conserve our most precious resource- water.

This is a good write up about the race; however, schools from all over the state competed, and all RC&D’s in the state participated by funding a car kit for a school in their area. Cawaco had 3 cars in the race beacuse Cawaco has supported this project since inception. Read more and see pictures and video here:
