Oxford Area School District
It is hard to imagine that the partially restored wetland between the Elk Ridge and Nottingham Schools was once a jumble of overgrowth. We are well on our way to transforming the tangle of invasive shrubs into an outdoor classroom where students can learn about our wetlands and the role we all play in maintaining the health of our watershed. With the professional expertise of ECWA's design consultant, LandStudies, Inc., a firm specializing in wetland design, we've been working with the Oxford Area School District (OASD), teachers and students to design outdoor education opportunities in multiple phase.
