It protects Lake Huron.
It helps pollinators.
It adds beauty.
It teaches.
The rain garden at the Harrisville Harbor will make a positive impact!

Students from Alcona High School's environmental science class worked on this all year as part of their place-based education stewardship curriculum.  They visited the Harbor to identify a need and see where they could contribute.  From there they planned the garden, wrote grants to secure funding and installed.

This will serve the community and the future students for years to come.
The garden will be maintained by future classes.

This video provides a great overview of the project:
