NEW HAVEN, Conn. (WTNH) — A New Haven schoolyard is looking a little greener.
Conte West Hills Magnet School teamed up with Common Ground High School to make a concrete jungle a little more wildlife friendly. After months of hardwork, phase one of the project is complete.
“This habitat is really designed to make sure we have native plants, native pollinators and it gives our children a space to really come and contemplate and explore, and we can encourage them to become stewards of the natural environment,” said Dianne Spence, Principal of Conte West Hills Magnet School.
Students, teachers and many other community partners joined together to make this possible. Conte West is just one of several New Haven Public Schools to create and urban habitat site.
