Trinidad Recreation Center

dc greenworks hosted 20 local high school students to work for the summer as part of The Mayor’s Green Summer Job Corps.  Together we designed and constructed a 350 square foot rain garden and 200 square foot bioswale at a local recreation center in the Trinidad neighborhood of DC.  Over the course of that summer, 20 high school students discovered the importance of environmental stewardship and the need to protect their natural resources.  These students came together, achieved a common goal and now have a personal experience that will help guide them in the future.  Educating our youth about the importance of protecting our environmental resources is critical for creating a sustainable future.
