The Center for Young Children (CYC) Rain Garden seeks to address the current drainage issues at the CYC's playground. The garden, designed by students in the Department of Plant Science and Landscape Architecture, would mitigate damage from excess stormwater. Related educational opportunities will also be availabe for educators at the CYC, as they can incorporate sustainability into their lesson plans. University students are involved with the design and research portion of the project, and plan to meet with faculty to develop lesson plans.
