News & Announcements
 
Watch Bridge School create the first Copper Country rain garden.
Teachers Chuck Palosaari and Cathy Hill at Bridge School, along with school coordinator, Trish Sherman, are involving the entire school in creating a rain garden in the school parking lot across from the school. Teachers consulted with MTU professors, Jennifer Becker and Eric Seagren, to develop their design. The City of Hancock has brought in heavy equipment to remove the asphalt in the 20'x30' space, excavated the hole, filled the hole with permeable earth materials, laid down a permeable geotextile to prevent frost heave, and delivered the top soil. Bridge students are leveling the topsoil and will soon begin planting water loving plants. Next fall, interpretive signage to inform the public, will be added. This is the FIRST rain garden to be constructed in our area!
