Badger Rock Students Receive Notice for Biodiversity Initiatives


Students at Badger Rock Middle School, a charter school focused on environmental education on the near south side of Madison, Wisconsin have received national notice for their schoolyard work with native species, ecological investigations, and outdoor projects such as caring for bird houses.   Projects to increase biodiversity included a rain garden and work to revitalize a neighborhood park (Badger Park).   An article about Badger Rock Middle School appeared July 25 in the online journal Quest.  See the full article here.   Also see an earlier post on the blog about Badger Rock that featured the school’s efforts to use green infrastructure to handle storm water runoff issues, click here.
