Classroom teachers across the state of Missouri are given the opportunity to apply for a grant through the MDC Discover Nature Schools Nature Unleashed program. With this grant teachers have the chance to promote conservation education through instructional units through resources and funding from the grant.
One of the units the students have done with the grant is to plant Boxwood shrubs between the main building and the art/music building. Not only will this be a beautiful addition to the campus, it has a purpose. As they grow they will provide shelter from any debris and wind.
Pictured below are:
