A duck in the Ecology Center at Scenic Hills Elementary School.

Ecology Center

Our EcoCenter began as a desire for a more hands on natural science experience than could be provided in a typical school setting. In 1997, an addition to the school resulted in a quarter acre interior courtyard becoming available.

The building of the pond and stream, and much of the extensive planting, took place during the summer of 1998.

What you see today is the result of cooperation among teachers, students, parents and administration. Although a very attractive setting, our focus is on the natural science and ecology that we can observe, live and up close, in this very special setting.
