How to integrate green infrastructure into learning
School ‘greenscapes’ are a system of outdoor learning environments and natural play areas that connect curriculum to nature through the practical application of learned concepts, across curriculum for all grade levels and subjects. They are stages for discovery, learning and imaginative play. They are living systems that work to reduce the volume of stormwater entering combined sewers using green infrastructure and to expand stormwater treatment capacity with traditional infrastructure improvements.
