The city and district partnered to secure a $100,000 grant from the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency to develop the educational wetland for students and the community, according to city officials.
Pictured above are students, with Norton at center left and Miller at the dedication and ribbon-cutting ceremony.
The Steese Road Wetland, shown below, will help reduce flooding downstream and be used as a hands-on classroom for students studying science, according to city officials.
