According to the Sun Sailor, the school got a $2,000 Lowe’s Toolbox for Education grant for improvements to the Birchview Nature Center.

The nature center project included the removal of buckthorn, planting of trees and shrubs, maintenance and educational tools, the newspaper reported. The project was completed this spring, but more work will need to be done in the upcoming school year.
