The project has reached this level with help from teacher, Amy Gunderman of Arlington Heights Academy and education specialist, Gwen Roth of Hamilton County Soil and Water Conservation District. The land on which the rain garden will be planted belongs to Ohio Department of Transportation. The students will be assisted in the planting by Groundwork Cincinnati Mill Creek and other students from Arlington Heights Academy.
Agrium’s Caring for our Watershed is an international initiative, to empower young minds to think creatively on important environmental issue like water quality and stormwater runoff. This initiative allows high school students to think innovatively and follow through with their ideas, to impact their community. The Ohio version of the program is locally organized by the Hamilton County Soil and Water Conservation District. The contest is open to students of grades 9 - 12 living in Hamilton County, Ohio. Student and teachers are encouraged to contact Hamilton County Soil and Water Conservation District for more information, on being a part of this initiative.
