In a green space outside of their school, 3rd graders and pre-schoolers have decided to restore the school Nature Area and create a learning space with benches.
Richardson Elementary Middle School - Owl Green Team
The Owl Green Team is a school garden club. This student led garden functions in many ways. Students plant and maintain a perennial flower and grass garden. Students grow seedlings in the school greenhouse in the Spring and Fall.

Other Partnerships

The Home Depot has most recently contributed tools and supplies to the Ella White Nature Area Project.

Working in conjunction with Alpena Child Advocacy Center and the Northeast Michigan Great Lakes Stewardship Initiative, Ella White Elementary teachers are giving students an opportunity to contribute to their school and community. The Ella White Nature Area has stood in front of the school for over a decade, yet has fallen into disrepair. Students are excited to get out and see what this area has to offer them!
