The concept of this plan is to develop the existing stormwater retention pond into a created wetlands habitat by introducing the plant material most recognized as the five ecozones of Florida. The created wetlands habitat will be planted with materials ranging from Coastal Upland Hammock to the Littoral Shelf just inside the shallow portion of the pond. In addition, the design of the created wetlands laboratory includes a bridge with stairs into the water, and an ADA boardwalk into the deepest part of the pond.

 


 

These hardscape elements will provide platforms from which students can access the water safely for taking water samples and teachers can conduct lessons. A nature trail with interpretive signage will identify the varied plant material and the ecozones.
