Glenside 

In Spring 2009, TTF replaced 10,000 square feet of lawn grass along the fence behind the Glenside Elementary School with native trees, shrubs and grasses. These plantings provide a much-needed buffer between the massive school lawn and the creek that runs alongside it.

The project improves the health of the creek while providing students with hands-on learning about watershed ecology and protection. Native plants help absorb stormwater to slow flooding, prevent erosion of the creek’s banks, and keep fertilizers, salt, trash and other pollutants out of the creek’s waters.

This project is an Audubon-certified Native Bird Habitat. TTF received a Pennsylvania Horticultural Society Community Greening Award for this project in 2009.
