Protect the parking lot

Mrs. Dianne Johnson’s AP Environmental Science students pass rocks to fill the basin and tackle soil erosion by the creek in front of school, Oct. 9. “I know that the water’s eroding off the grass, and they might be losing the parking lot, so we’re trying to fix that,” Valerie Hiles (11) said. “The rocks could help prevent it from eroding more of the soil.” Mrs. Johnson has been monitoring the situation for some time. “Water would shoot across and erode out the bank,” Mrs. Johnson said. “It’s only six or eight inches from the bus lane, and it’s to the point where we have to do something about that.”
